Jeremy has volunteered at the Norfolk Schools Sailing Association (NSSA) for 38 years. His enthusiasm for learning and passion to share his sailing knowledge have gained him a great reputation locally and regionally. Heavily involved with the running of the Association, he was Commodore for two years in 1993 and 1994. When the NSSA sailing base at Filby was threatened with closure in 2004 he was instrumental in ensuring NSSA activities continued at nearby clubs until he negotiated a long-term lease, achieved RYA Recognised Training Centre status and became Base Principal. He has continued this role also becoming a Trustee when NSSA took on charitable status in 2011 to ensure the facilities are fully accessible to all. He continues to lead by example in his coaching role and recently led the adult training and Dinghy Instructor courses for NSSA, leading to over 160 newly qualified instructors. Greatly liked by all, and a popular role model, Jeremy has a way of boosting people’s confidence and encouraging more hesitant sailors to greater achievements through infectious enthusiasm for the activity he loves.
