It has been stated from the beginnings in our status that les Glénans Sailing School exist “to create ties through the sea between men and women from all countries”. While we currently have many foreigners with French speaking skills joining les Glénans, it has been decided to reach out to a broader audience by offering again sessions in English.
In order to achieve that, we need to build a community of instructors that will feel comfortable coaching in English. If many of us speak English well enough, we all know that sailing is a foreign language by itself.
A team from the CEB has developed in 2022 a training course dedicated to “train the trainers” and make sailing instructors comfortable to teach in English. It was a success!
The next session will take place at Penfret (in l’Archipel) from April 08th to April 12th. It is for every sailing instructor : cruise, windsurf, dinghy or catamaran. If you are interested, please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org
We will start advertising on the official Glénans website that there will be courses in English as from summer 2023 in Concarneau – l’Archipel.
If you are interested and already know which weeks you would like to book as an instructor this season, please let us know on the same address.
We look forward to sailing with you !
