I made the most out of any given opportunity
We design our courses so that our students have the skills, knowledge and confidence to go out straight into work and have a career on the water. This is exactly what former student, now a staff member, Nancy McManus did after graduating from the Watersports Instructor Course. Nancy shares her story:
“During my stay at UKSA, I learnt to make the most out of any given opportunity. There are lots of talented and well-experienced sailors at the centre who are always willing to sit down with you and give you any help you need.
After completing the Watersports Instructor Course, I went straight to work as an instructor for a season in France with my best mate. I’ve since returned to UKSA and have been working full time as a Senior Instructor for a year. It’s a very rewarding job, as I’m able to pass on the skills UKSA taught me onto students who are following in my footsteps.
3 weeks of windsurfing training at moon beach in Egypt
As part of the course, we had the pleasure of going to Egypt, Moon Beach, to do 3 weeks of windsurfing training before returning to do our Windsurfing Instructors Assessment. It was a brilliant experience and we got to let our hair down and enjoy the weather conditions and the sport.”
