The IOM Yacht Club at Port St Mary will be holding a RYA first aid course on Saturday 10th October. This course is specially designed for those who go sailing and gives practical advice that could prove to be invaluable both at sea and on land. The course is led by Mr Steve Upsdell who in attention to being a leading surgeon is also a sailor.
All skippers and mates are required to hold a current first aid certificate; which are required to be revalidated every three years, please check to see if yours is still valid. Due to the first aid being mandatory for skippers and mates the charity pays their course fee. Other members are able to attend but they must pay the cost of the course themselves.
Please let Rodger know if you wish to attend by contacting him on 327990 or by emailing him at email@example.com

On Wednesday 12th September five children together with their adult support team enjoyed a morning sail on POMIII. After boarding at our normal berth they left to head south to Derby Haven in dead flat seas with no wind.
With the flat seas it was ideal for wildlife spotting and the group were lucky to see near Derby Haven a basking shark and harbour porpises. Then it was back to Douglas for a change of crew at the breakwater visitor pontoon.
The sail took place following Zoe Crowe the Disability Sports Developemt Officer contacting us to see if we could help to deliver their objective.
To develop and enhance the inclusion of disabled people in community based sport and physical activity opportunities.
We were pleased to be able to help.
