The Rockley team is hugely passionate about promoting sailing and watersports to everyone. The Management team is led by avid sailor and sportswoman, Pip Woods Rockley MD with the team made up of mostly female members who love, running, cycling and windsurfing.
While it has been noticed that there are fewer young girls sailing than boys Rockley instructors, across the five centres in the UK and France are an equal ratio of male/female RYA qualified and the very popular Rockley BTEC Level 3 Sport has an even take up.
Tracey Crouch, Minister for Sport said: “We want more women and girls to get involved in sport and enjoy the huge benefits that being active brings to their lives.
“Women’s Sport Week is a fantastic campaign that encourages more women to try out a new sport or physical activity and celebrates the amazing achievements of our female athletes, coaches and volunteers. With a number of major events taking place, 2017 is a big year for women’s sport and I know that the nation will be right behind our inspirational female stars.”
