Welcome aboard! New bosun joins sailing team

24th May 2017

The new bosun for sail training yachts at Turn to Starboard has been welcomed with open arms by the team.

Ian Betts (right) took on the post this month following his volunteer work as a sailing instructor at the charity since October 2014.

Ian, 56, joined the Royal Navy when he was 16 years old and worked as an Aircraft Engineer until 2010. He was officially welcomed ‘on board’ the Spirit of Falmouth by the tall ship’s bosun, Rich Birchall (left), along with sailing instructors Steve Brady (centre) and Dan Fielding.
