Snettisham Sailing Club’s new full-time instructor Trim is a cut above the rest

Have your say

Snettisham Beach Sailing Club welcomes new full time Senior Sailing Instructor James Trim to their instructor team in April 2017.

James is joining from the Northshore chandlery shop & Sail Craft Sea School at Brancaster Staithe where James was teaching and instructing students in sailing. After James’s seven years at Brancaster Staithe, Northshore has closed due to the owner Jamie Borthwick’s retirement.

James is making a full career out of his love of outdoor pursuits; after leaving Springwood High School, Lynn in 2009 he took the College of West Anglia’s Higher Outdoors Activities Course and completed it in 2010.

He took his Senior Sailing Instructor course in March 2016 at Bradwell Outdoors Centre in Essex on the Blackwater River. Besides sailing, James is into white water canoeing, hiking and cycling.

He swims a mile a week.

He also recently acquired a Wayfarer dinghy from Northshore that he sails with fellow ailing instructor Nick Williams and keeps at Brancaster Staithe.
