The RYA Membership Team is inviting all RYA Gold Members to join them at the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show for an exclusive Gold Members’ brunch, with special guest speaker, Stephen Park OBE, RYA Olympic and Paralympic Manager and members of the British Sailing Team.  

Taking place on Sunday 06 March, in the Londesborough Room, Alexandra Palace, this free to attend event will provide you with the perfect opportunity to meet members of the RYA membership and senior management teams, as well as fellow RYA Gold Members to chat about the boating you do, find out more about the work of the RYA and ask any questions you may have in an informal setting.   Special guest  

With just months to go until the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games get underway, we are delighted to be joined Stephen ‘Sparky’ Park OBE and members of the British Sailing Team who are busy preparing to represent Great Britain at the Games in August. Sparky and team will chat about the challenges Rio will present and how they are building the team, as well as how the Olympic sailing landscape is changing as Sparky heads in to his fourth Games as team manager. We are sure this will be a very insightful peek behind the scenes.  


Hosted by RYA Membership Development Manager Conor Swift, the event is open to Gold Members, plus one guest, and a selection of drinks and pastries will be on offer, making it the perfect addition to your trip to the RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show.
