  3. 3. SONATA NEWS: RYA KEELBOAT INSTRUCTOR COURSE Our six new, very committed, trainee Keelboat Instructors spent last week on an intensive course learning the RYA Teaching Method and how to teach seamanship skills to new sailors. The course assumes good sailing skills and the trick is how to teach it! They all put in a huge effort, with personal feedback on their accomplishments. A follow-up session in May will further enhance their learning. So many thanks to everyone for huge dedication to our Sonata project that aims to introduce newcomers to sailing and increase our membership. The Main Committee has been very supportive, and we are also very pleased that the RYA's active support has been rekindled. Our Sonata Maintenance Crew have been magnificent in working through terrible winter weather to get our boats on the water, and thanks also to Ray Frost for the loan of Sibelius. Last but not least, thanks to those of you who were trainee students on the last two days of the training week.
