Ben joins the RYA
Ben Hodgson has replaced Gareth Brookes as RYA Midlands regional development officer.
Ben has previously been involved with the management of a commercial training centre – Carsington Sport and Leisure - for around ten years as well as running his own training business.
He is one of a handful of individuals who hold appointments as a dinghy coach assessor, powerboat trainer, windsurf trainer and a personal watercraft trainer as well as being an active centre Inspector.
“It's a personal challenge for me to bring on what Gareth's done over the past decade,” he said. “Wearing all the different hats I have, there's probably only half a dozen venues in the Midlands I've not been to, so I've got a good feel for everything that's been going on in our clubs and what centres are up to, plus I know a lot of the individuals.”
