ISAF is very happy to announce that the Spanish ISAF Member National Authority, the Real Federacion Espanola de Vela (RFEV) has officially applied for the accreditation of its National Sail Training Programme. The visit will take place from 17-22 April.
Jose Manuel Fernandez Agudo, RFEV Learning Committee Secretary explains the reasons behind the decision to apply for accreditation of their National Sail Training Programme, "As part of the RFEV request to join the ISAF master training program as a dedicated member, in the next days we will host an ISAF member visit to review our training centers located all over the Spanish territory, and progress in the qualifying process."
The Training centers of CEAR Principe Felipe - Santander, Gallego de Vela - Villagarcia de Arousa , CETD - Bahía de Cadiz, Tecnificación Infanta Cristina - Murcia, are ready to show the work they are doing to promote and form thousands of sailors in their respective regions within a National Training Program frame.
The RFEV consider their incorporation, as a fully dedicated member of the ISAF credit program, a major improvement to its qualified and experienced training programs, and will be as well honoured to be part of the international community and having the opportunity to exchange experiences, knowledge and passion in the sailors training from all over the world.'
Dan Jaspers, ISAF Training and Development Manager comments on this latest application, "ISAF are very happy that our Spanish Member National Authority is to engage with us in this programme. The RFEV are working very closely with us right now on one of the largest and most cohesive legacy development projects ISAF has ever developed.
"The Santander 2014 Emerging Countries Project and the efforts of the RFEV Coaching team have been a pivotal part of this work and I thank RFEV President Gerardo Pombo for his support, ongoing dedication to development and passion in partnering with us as we try and help a potential 100 nations attend the 2014 ISAF Sailing World Championships in Santander, Spain. Much work goes into creating a National Programme and I look forward to what we can learn from our friends in the Spanish Sailing Community."
