New fleet of boats for ASWC Portland signals the start of the 2018 season!

The ASWC Portland team were excited to receive their fleet of training boats for 2018 this week. A lorry full of 20 RS Zests arrived bright and early in the first wave of the 30 boats that will be delivered to the centre over the next month.

These boats will increase the ASWC Portland’s capabilities for enabling disadvantaged young people to access sailing in Portland Harbour. The boats have been designed specifically with training centres in mind and the team are looking forward to getting them out on the water.

Centre Manager Alex Porter said ‘It’s great to be one of the first centres in the UK to have the RS Zest and we are excited to see what they can do! It will increase our capacity for teaching and extend the conditions we can operate in due to it’s innovative design.’
