Happy New Year - We are looking forward to the new season starting at Easter. Preparations are being made, boats repaired and serviced. Not too long now!
Congratulations to the NVQ Level 1, Sport and Active Leisure course! We are delighted to be able to confirm that they passed their Level 1 with flying colours. Most of these students left school with no GCSE's and now have a qualification that will enable them to get into College. They also all gained at least one level in English whilst they were there. Even better news - 3 of these students have applied for and been accepted on courses at College. Well done guys, all that hard work has paid off!
NVQ Level 1, Sport and Active Leisure: This course has got off to a great start with some lovely sunshine and gently breeze. If you would like to know more about the different qualifications we offer at Pentewan Sailing please contact us.
June Dinghy Instructor Course: Congratulations to all the candidates that passed the course, we hope you will enjoy teaching sailing as much as we do!

February Senior Instructor Course
We had beautiful weather for our Senior Instructor course in February. Nice winds and fantastic sunshine led to perfect conditions for the candidates to really show us how good they are. We now have 6 new Senior Instructors in the industry. Congratulations to them all and here's to a great summer in your new roles, we are sure you will be brilliant.

Congratulations to our young sailors who excelled themselves at the Roadford Regatta. It was extremely windy and there were a good few capsizes, but they braved the conditions and kept going, winning the overall team prize and to Matt and Jamie who were the 1st Pico. All that training and practice paid off!
We've had a great year... Here are some photos of the action!
