Rachel is currently studying for her Masters degree in Teaching and has achieved several watersports qualifications including RYA Senior Instructor, RYA Windsurfng Instructor, RYA Powerboat Instructor with endorsements for multihulls and racing.
Ahead of her last week with us we sat down for a chat to find out what lured her back to the Rockley team.
I first worked for Rockley in 2013 and also did a season in 2017. I have worked at two different centres in France: La Rive and Azu'Rivage and I have completed a lot of my watersports instructor courses at Rockley Point so I also know the centre there well.
I currently work as a secondary school geography teacher at Hillcrest School in Birmingham. I studied geography at Leeds University and was heavily involved in the sailing and windsurfing societies there. Since moving to Birmingham I have become a keen paddleboarder and I've particularly enjoyed playing SUP Polo. I am also a member at Bartley Sailing Club where I have a Laser.
I've done several fantastic seasons both abroad and in the UK, but I always seem to get drawn back to Rockley. Since I first worked at Rockley I've lived in three different cities for university and work, and each time I have always met ex-Rockley staff - it's like a big community!
We look forward to seeing Rachel again on the water with us!
