...Ryan Yates, who joined the Club last weekend.
"I have done the powerboat level 2 and while looking at boats in my downtime at work (fantasy shopping) realised I'd much rather have a sailing boat than a motor cruiser! In the long run I want to have a sail boat that I could take to France/the Med etc. And I figured I'd give dinghy sailing a go and loved it in its own right!
I have zero sailing experience other than crewing for 2 races now. I'm booked on for the RYA level 1 and will do level 2 straight after if I can. In the meantime I'll just get experience via people telling me what to do!
I'm more on the cruising around and having a nice time side rather than ultra-competitive, but I will always try to do the best I can."
