Here are a number of useful background resources in support of the RYA Senior Instructor Course. They are designed to provide potential SIs with some background reading in a number of topics and act as a set of resources to draw upon in the future. Sources are the RYA website, Wavelength, Phil Twining, Suzie Blair (ex RDO) and previous National Coaches. Most files are small but one or two are up to 2MB in size and one is indicated as very large.
