Not to be missed...

Catch up with the ACC and get your tickets for the Dinghy & Watersports Show

A huge thank you to all those who joined us on Monday evening for the online Affiliated Clubs Conference hosted by Shirley Robertson. We do recognise and apologise for the challenges with the delayed start  and for those who missed it, the conference is still available both on the conference platform and on YouTube.

For those who did tune in, we would very much appreciate your feedback on the wider event so we can review this and start our planning for the future events.  If you could spend a few minutes to complete the survey here we would be very grateful.

Of course the face to face regional events are still to come and will continue to reflect on the theme of 'planning for a successful future' in more detail.
