Stratford Boat Club celebrates drivers' success

Liam Moakes 24th Oct, 2018

TIME was taken to celebrate the success of a Stratford Boat Club quartet who achieved their qualifications as launch drivers and earned Royal Yachting Association (RYA) Level Two licences.

The RYA course focuses on low-speed, close-quarters handling, man overboard recovery, an introduction to driving and collision regulations.

“Safety is a matter we take most seriously here at Stratford Boat Club, not only for our members, especially the junior squad, but also for all river-users and the general public,” said Shân Stokes, Stratford BC’s safety advisor.

“All our safety and training launch drivers are all put through rigorous RYA Level Two training to ensure they are up to the highest standards and comply with British Rowing’s recommendations.

“We are especially pleased to see four more volunteers join the rota.”
