Commodore Yachting were delighted to receive a visit from HRH Princess Anne at the 2014 London Boat Show as they celebrate 15 years as a RYA Training Centre
HRH Princess Anne asked Principal Stuart Cooper about the number of years Commodore Yachting had exhibited at the London Boat Show at the Excel Centre and what made the company return each year. Stuart explained that the January Boat Show is a crucial event in the sailing year providing the opportunity for members of the public to talk to RYA training centre staff face to face. The role of the RYA in promoting safety on the water through training courses such as Competent Crew, Day Skipper and Yachtmaster is vital in saving lives and making the sport accessible and enjoyable for participants. HRH Princess Anne is patron of the RYA and a keen sailor herself and spent several minutes asking questions and learning about the Solent based RYA sailing school.
