HRCST, plans to improve/increase its fleet and increase the number of RYA professionally qualified instructors. Over the next 5 years this will enable us :- -to increase the capacity and quality of volunteer training -to increase the numbers of children from existing Primary schools and include other schools from deprived areas of Kerrier RDC -to increase the number of SEN children by more than 50% -to start a weekend Youth Training Programme, extend the Saturday Club and start racing 2 evenings a week leading to faster qualifying/career opportunities With better trained and qualified volunteers not only will we have more children but achieve faster rates of learning and achievement of qualifications with enhanced experience for all involved. HRCST serves 13 Primary schools in Kerrier (including the Lizard Peninsular), Falmouth Primary (which has a significant proportion of problem children) and PencalenickSEN school (which covers the whole of Cornwall). Funding is needed to replace and maintain equipment and for core expenditure.
