Alas­dair is coach of the year

The Oban Times - - Sport -

THE SAIL­ING com­mu­nity from around Scot­land gath­ered to recog­nise the achieve­ments of Scot­land’s vol­un­teers, coaches, in­struc­tors, of­fi­cials, clubs and per­for­mance sailors.

The theme was very much one of ‘fam­ily’ at the re­cent Royal Yacht­ing As­so­ci­a­tion Scot­land awards, em­pha­sis­ing the sup­port net­work that en­ables the range of ac­tiv­ity rep­re­sented across the 10 award cat­e­gories.

Among the high­lights at the event, held at Glas­gow Sci­ence Cen­tre, was the coach of the year ac­co­lade, which was handed to Alas­dair Young from Tarbert for his cre­ative coach­ing tech­niques with class academies and in clubs.

Young said: ‘I have been work­ing as a coach for nearly 12 years now at vary­ing lev­els, and to even be as­so­ci­ated with some of the past win­ners of the award, let alone to win, is an amaz­ing com­pli­ment.’
