After 3 & 1/2 years, Gav Watson has stepped down from the Class Captains role. On behalf of the IOM class and skippers we would like to thank him for his work for the class during this period.
Now is the time for the next class owner to step up and continue the growth of the class. The role is not difficult and is mainly about communicating with the class skippers and promoting our fantastic class to others in the radio sailing community and beyond, dont worry if your not a cutting edge skipper, enthusiasm, passion and communication skills are far more important. There are current class owners who assist with the role so you wont be on your own and the typical timescale for the role is 3 years, so no need to worry that you’ve taken a job for life!
Why not send Gavin an email to see what the role actually entails and maybe stick your hand up to give it a go…
P.S. We are sure that Gav will help the new Class Captain bed in as he’s still passionate about the class.
