Our Club Coach – Dani Juden – learnt to sail as a cadet member of Downs SC at Hythe Lakes, Redoubt  like many of our adult and cadet members. Dani gained experience by taking part in the Downs Friday Evening sessions and various Kent Schools Sailing Association events. She went on to become qualified as a RYA Dinghy Instructor, Senior Instructor, Race Coach and Power Boat Instructor. As well as enjoying dinghy sailing Dani races yachts out of Ramsgate and is a keen and competitive rugby player for Canterbury Ladies.
