Years of hard work have paid off at Coquet Yacht Club after it achieved Royal Yachting Association training centre status, only awarded to accredited establishments which meet rigorous safety and teaching standards.

“Coquet Yacht Club is, and will continue to be, a well-established centre for offshore sailing in the region and taking the club on towards RYA Training Centre status seemed a natural progression,” said club Commodore Richard Hope.

“It has taken a lot of hard work by a dedicated team, led chiefly by Mark Phillips, our training centre principal, and driven by our past Commodore Phil Derry, but the club has been transformed in the past two years.”
