Include an environmental aspect into your sailing coaching programmes
Why - By including educational material in our coaching programmes, we can encourage curiosity and help people explore their surroundings.
With simple materials and minimal preparation, lesson plans can address important ocean health issues including plastic pollution, overfishing and climate change.
How – Yachting New Zealand are currently working on a new programme in this area, which is due for release in the coming months.
Sailors for the Sea and World Sailing/World Sailing Trust also offer an extensive range of material.
Alternatively, you could get creative and adapt your own format that works well for your club.
