Sail Nelson is the deserving recipient of the NZ RYA School of the Year Award, presented at the RYA (Royal Yachting Association) Forum 2010, held at the Richmond Yacht Club in Auckland last month.

The award was presented by James Steven (RYA UK Training Manager & Chief Examiner) to the Nelson based training centre, in recognition of their dedication and delivery of internationally recognised RYA courses.

'Sail Nelson has done very well to have built their business to become by far the biggest sailing school in the South Island. They always have excellent feedback from students. Whilst the sailing industry might be perceived as a nice way to make an easy living, in reality it was very hard work and operators had to put a lot into it to reach the standards of this year's winner' says Neil Murray, Training and Development Manager of Coastguard Boating Education.

Sail Nelson's principal instructor, John Moore, is not only an expert sailor and teacher, but the attention to detail in the presentation of his yacht and the hospitality and personal attention students receive puts Sail Nelson in a class of its own. John grew up sailing with his father in the picturesque Tasman Bay and has unparalleled knowledge of the waters and conditions in the region. He has also sailed internationally as a crew member and master.

At just 19 years of age he was New Zealand's youngest ever certified Deep Sea Skipper, commanding deep sea fishing vessels in the pioneering days of Nelson's offshore fishing industry. He spent 12 years as a senior tutor of navigation and seamanship at the New Zealand School of Fisheries, based in Nelson and later returned to his first love, sailing.

As a qualified and practising Maritime New Zealand examiner with over six years of instructional experience, John has been kept very busy since Sail Nelson was founded in 2004.

A strong advocate of the RYA John is quoted as saying that the RYA syllabus teaches sea safety while students are on the water and gives practical skills for the enjoyment of both tourists and New Zealanders. I love my classroom in the Abel Tasman National Park and across the Nelson region. Traditionally navigation and sea safety has been taught as a theoretical classroom subject and my experience is that it comes alive, and the understanding of knowledge is faster when applied on a muiti-day practical course on the ocean. People who come aboard gain new skills and the experience enhances their lives and their self beliefs. It's great to see people have a positive and enjoyable experience.'
