Eight crew members are celebrating after achieving professional sailing qualifications at Turn to Starboard this month.
Injured veterans Nick, Lee and Andrew showed incredible determination to qualify as RYA Yachtmasters – the ultimate aim of many skippers and a passport to jobs in the marine industry.
Former soldiers Pete and Hayden learned the ropes to become active crew members and gained RYA Competent Crew Certificates, while Tom and Dave confidently demonstrated their knowledge to pass the RYA Day Skipper practical and theory exams respectively.
Turn to Starboard Operations Coordinator and experienced sailor, Paul Miller, also qualified as an RYA Yachtmaster Instructor. The high-level course requires candidates to hold in-depth sailing knowledge and experience and to have logged more than 7,000 miles at sea.
We would like to say a huge “well done” to everyone on their exceptional achievements!
