The Connect to Sailing seminar is shaping up to be the event that is a must for all delegates at this year's ISAF Annual Conference in Korea.
Sunday 8 November will see a host of ISAF Member National Authority (MNA) guests and ISAF dignitaries gather for what promises to be an interactive afternoon of news and discussion. A great deal has happened in the world of training at the International Sailing Federation over the last year and the Training Commission are keen to share their exciting news and involve as many MNAs as possible in the future development of the various initiatives they are working on.
For anyone wanting to have more information of this event, please log onto the ISAF website and go to the Connect to Sailing page for more info: www.sailing.org/connecttosailing/seminars.php
The main news at this years seminar is that ISAF will formally be accepting applications for MNAs wishing to have their National Training Programmes recognized for 'ISAF Recognized Training' accreditation. The outline guidelines have been on the ISAF Website for some time now - www.sailing.org/sailors/learntosail.php
- and many countries have been in touch to ask how they can develop existing Training Provision and the future of this scheme looks to be very exciting indeed.
For more information on how you can get involved and what benefits the International Recognition can give your MNA, please get in touch with Dan Jaspers - Training and Development Manager for ISAF and he will give you all the help you need. Click here to contact Dan
