Instructing

I’m a RYA qualified sailing instructor and a freelance outdoor pursuits instructor.

I worked for BHP Inspiring Events, part-time 2007 – 2010 instructing groups of up to 20 adults in one or two hour sessions in risk associated activities (climbing, motorized sports) and other team building activities.

As a Water Sports Instructor I worked at Sunsail Antigua and Sunsail Turkey in 2006 and 2005. My duties included organizing up to six boats on the water to provide safety cover for up to 150 guests and teaching two days courses and short workshops to up to 30 people of all ages. I specialised in teaching nervous adults. 

In 2004 and 2002 I worked at Rockley Watersports as a fleet leader and activities co-ordinator. The work included organising and advising up to 5 other instructors; planning weekly programs to teach groups of up to 15 adults how to sail in changeable and challenging weather; teaching small groups of adults; and providing varied entertainment for up to 80 children.
