Centre Development Consultancy

We take your Centre Development to the next level

The Beijing Sailing Centre had put a lot of effort into training local Chinese Sailing instructors, however, with the increased demand, they felt they needed some support. In 2011 they contracted Blueprint Watersports to assist. Blueprint Watersports ran instructor training for the local staff in their own language, as well as managing all their UK staff recruitment. This helped them not only grow into one of Chinas leading Watersports providers but also develop their own in house instructors to an industry level some of which are now centre managers.

Vanhang Sailing are owned by Vanke one of Chinas largest international property development firms. Their aims were to gain international accreditation, develop a strong watersports workforce and to enthuse young people into sailing. Since 2014 Blueprint Watersports has assisted them in creating Chinas first ever RYA Recognised training centre and instructor course. With our initial support they are now achieving their goals and even have a world youth championship sailing event at one of their 6 centres.
