SailCoach Foundation, a leading provider of sail training services in Malta, who operates the Royal Malta Yacht Club Sailing School was recently presented with a new safety boat by Lancaster6, an international development consultancy firm with a base in Malta.

The safety boat will further enhance the safety practices and procedures that the Foundation has in place and which are implemented during the course of all training sessions.

Lancaster6’s CEO Christiaan Durrant, an avid sailor said “Our choice to support the SailCoach Foundations stems from the numerous syngeries they have with Lancaster6 – both organisations work towards developing emerging nations.  From our side, we assist nations to govern for tomorrow and in SailCoach’s they help them develop through forging a sporting culture, assisting their sailing athletes achieve Olympic qualification and in some cases, Olympic Medals”.

SailCoach Foundation currently operates the Royal Malta Yacht Club’s Sailing School and offers dinghy sailing courses for all ages seven and above from the Foundation’s base at the Royal Malta Yacht Club, Ta’ Xbiex.

The SailCoach Foundation’s founder Trevor Millar said “It is good to see organizations like Lancaster6 giving back to the local community. The donation of this safety boat will greatly assist the Royal Malta Yacht Club Sailing School, in training Maltese school children to sail as well as in our Olympic coaching programmes”.
