The renowned Ireland and Round Britain Race competitor Lulla Belle is all set to join the Irish National Sailing and Powerboat School fleet. To start with the First 36.7 has commenced, and takes on Day Skipper and Competent Crew duties in addition to being prepared for race charter. Kenneth Rumball, the chief instructor explains the new skills Lulla Belle has brought to the school. He says there is an enhanced downstairs space which offers utmost comfort for students in addition to good water performance that would maximize the experience of the course.

Lulla Belle joined the school with high racing pedigree besides great success achieved in the Sevenstar Round Britain & Ireland Race in 2014. She also won in the double handed class, IRC4 and finished in 5th place overall. Rumball says she is a regular teacher on the race course which is the topmost priority as far as the school’s requirement is concerned. This way, she would ensure that her teaching routine will help for charter for most events and also help to maintain a specific racing and training sail inventory. It’s needless to say that Lulla Belle is a highly competitive player and recently underwent a rigorous grooming session and passed the Department of Marine license. Also, she competed in her 1st ever Competent Crew & Day Skipper Classes post her return from charter.

Lulla Belle’s spacious downstairs and enhanced performance has made her the appropriate vessel to match with the Irish National Sailing & Powerboat School’s Professional Yachtmaster Program which is a new launch. The program will basically have trained skippers to take part in the Yacht master offshore standard for sailing season next year. Additional benefits such as training to PWC Module, RYA Advanced powerboat & Tender Operator Standards would be offered. The program would take place towards the end of September.
