David Clarke, Centre Principal

David is our Centre Principal and Chief Powerboat Instructor. He is a freelance RYA Coach working with many commercial sailing schools and clubs throughout the UK delivering Senior Instructor and Dinghy Instructor courses. We benefit enormously as David is able to delivery these courses from Ullswater Sailing School and is always keeping a close eye on our teaching staff ensuring we maintain the highest standards. David started sailing in the scouts many years ago and has sailed and raced competitively many dinghy classes, sports boats, and keelboats though out the UK and Europe, winning championships from time to time. Using his extensive racing experience he is appointed by the RYA to train accomplished sailors as Level 2 Race Coaches. David also delivers our powerboat courses and when time permits he can be found at coastal centres delivering the advanced powerboat course.
