We have heard from the SCA and RYA that the above consultation is underway. You can read more about it on the following webpage:
In short there is a significant risk that every watersports club conducting any form of training may need to be inspected by a government agent and pay a license, unless the consultation that is now open provides clear opinion to the contrary.
Other that the financial implications, this would place further pressure on the volunteer coaches within clubs. Please look at the webpage and register your opinion before 30th March 2012.
