ICC Island Spirit
Torquay, Devon, TQ8 8DP
RYA Yacht Training
With over 60 years experience of cruising and yacht sail training, the ICC is regarded as one of the best places in the UK to learn to sail, and the scenery of the Devon and Cornwall coastline provides a beautiful backdrop and fantastic sailing terrain. While training courses tend to use local waters, we also offer 5 or 7 day cross channel cruises exploring some of the Channel Islands and offering great sailing experience on longer passages. All our cruises begin and end in Salcombe.
Our dedicated training yacht ‘Island Spirit’ is a Delphia 37 and is perfect for teaching, mile-building and relaxed cruising. We can accommodate up to 5 guests plus the skipper for RYA courses and mile-building, and more for informal group sailing and day trips. We welcome families, individuals, friends and business groups.
Courses are residential onboard the yacht and prices include food, moorings and fuel.
Our fully trained and experienced RYA Instructors make all of our courses enjoyable, while giving you the best of their knowledge and understanding. Safety is paramount and our equipment and practices are inspected regularly by the MCA and RYA.

Womens Running Network LTD
Exeter, Devon, EX4 4RN
We are an all female running movement founded in 1998 in Devon by Pauline Beare and Peggy Wiseman to inspire women of all ages to run for fun and fitness. Since 1998 the WRN has grown from a handful of members based in Exeter to a large organisation with groups all over England and Wales. "The success" says Pauline "is based on a simple philosophy: Giving all women, whatever their age, size or ability, the opportunity to run together to improve their health, fitness, confidence and safety."
The WRN is affiliated to England Athletics, but it is different from other running clubs. For instance, there is not a single club house or a single club night. Instead, the Women's Running Network consists of locally organised groups that are co-ordinated through the network. Community based, rural, workplace, city –all led by qualified passionate leaders.
All leaders have completed a Leadership course and hold a licence to lead under United Kingdom Athletics. As the groups are relatively small and local, you will be given individual attention and your group leader will know you personally.
Why An All-Women Group?
Our groups are fun, social, non-competitive and open to every age, stage, shape and size. We genuinely support the complete beginner and by being all women, we find that our members feel less self-conscious.
But I Have Never Run Before!
We welcome women just like you. The Women's Running Network caters for women of all running abilities, including the complete beginner. Even if you are unfit or have never run before, the Women's Running Network can help you get started, giving you sensible advice, support and company while you run. We will help you to identify and reach your goals.
