Following the bad weather before Christmas which resulted in the abandonment of the RRO Course at the last minute we are pleased to say the course managed to finally run at Scaling Dam SC on 26/27 February. There were 10 attendees coming from as far away as Weymouth as well as a large North East local contingent representing our local clubs including 4 from Kielder.
Many thanks to Henry Wright (National Race Officer) and Adrian Stoggall (Chair RYA Race Management Committee, International and Olympic Race Officer) who not only ran the course but provided us with some excellent insights and stories which made the course so interesting and 'real'.
All 10 attendees attained the CRO+ qualification and are now submitting CVs or working towards gaining the requisite experience for RRO status. Our congratulations therefore go to the following KWSC members who successfully passed the exam for RRO and are now working towards full qualification with relevant experience: Ernie Bennett, Steve Gibbon, Peter Hawkin and Alec Mamwell.
