Rockley supports Connect to Sailing


Rockley International has extended its commitment to the development of grass roots sailing by becoming the latest industry partner to join ISAF’s Connect to Sailing initiative.

Rockley International is one of the leading providers of sail training in Europe, with seven activity centres across France and Great Britain. Offering both day and residential sailing courses, with a committed focus on youth, Rockley’s reputation is based on a long record of providing the highest quality of sailing instruction, equipment, safety and fun.

Rockley International is fully recognized by the national governing body for sailing in Great Britain, the Royal Yachting Association (RYA), and runs courses from learn to sail through to instructor training. In addition to dedicated sail training, Rockley International also offers family activity holidays and school activity trips.

Speaking on the partnership, Peter GORDON, Managing Director of Rockley International, said, “Rockley is delighted to be supporting ISAF’s Connect to Sailing project. We have been introducing children and adults to sailing for more than 30 years and we look forward to working with ISAF to promote this exciting initiative. It is vital that people from around the world get the opportunities that sailing at all levels can bring both to individuals, groups and nations as a whole.”

Luissa SMITH, Head of Training and Development at the ISAF Secretariat said, “ISAF is proud to be partnering with Rockley, a leading provider of sail training. Sharing the passion of sailing is paramount for Rockley, and is achieved across all courses, from the first experience sessions through to the advancing racing courses. Rockley has secured a leading reputation and ISAF looks forward to developing our partnership to broaden the aims of Connect to Sailing.”
