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, but with a significant increased in demand, they really needed some additional support. In 2011 BSC contracted Blueprint Watersports to assist. We were then able to provide instructor training for local staff in their own language, as well as managing all of BSC’s UK staff recruitment. This helped them to grow into one of China’s leading watersports providers and to develop their own in-house instructors to a high standard and with a view to becoming future venue managers.
Vanhang Sailing are owned by Vanke, one of China’s largest international property development companies. Their aim was to gain international accreditation, develop a strong watersports workforce and to enthuse young people and encourage them into sailing. Since 2014 Blueprint Watersports has assisted Vanhang in establishing China’s first ever RYA Recognised Training Centre and in providing the first RYA Instructor Course. With our initial support they are now achieving their goals and even have a world youth championship sailing event being hosted at one of their six venues.

Overseas National Governing Body Growth

The Yachting Association of India (YAI) wanted to increase the amount of people involved in sailing in India, in order to create more competition within sailing racing. Over a 3-year period, Blueprint Watersports not only trained their newly appointed Training Manager, but also produced a full instructor training scheme with teaching materials and resources. This gave the YAI a new training department scheme and this foundation has now lead to the creation of over 20 civilian training centres around India.
The Hong Kong Sailing Federation wanted to outsource their Sailing Instructor and Race Coach training in order to create more consistency in training and delivery for the development of the sport in Hong Kong. Blueprint Watersports was instrumental in HKSF’s sail training from beginner to national race squads and with venue inspections to improve quality, culminating in an Instructor Trainer Course which in turn has helped to make HKSF self sufficient for the years to come.

Expert Witness

Experienced Expert Witness for legal support

After being contacted by a large legal firm, Blueprint Watersports was asked to review the Operating Procedures and Safety Management systems of a private watersports club following a tragic and fatal accident and impending court case. Blueprint checked and compared all the club’s information against industry best practice and were then able to advise the legal firm on the issues regarding safety training, emergency procedures and staff qualifications. This resulted in the legal firm being able to make informed decisions on the case and how to proceed.
