RYA Affiliated Clubs Conferences

An opportunity for clubs to come together, share ideas and be inspired

These conferences are ideal for anyone involved in managing your club or its activities including: flag officers, committee members, staff and volunteers. 

All the events will be free to delegates from RYA Affiliated Clubs.

The regional and home country conferences will be an opportunity to connect with other clubs as well as RYA staff and volunteers. Join us to hear the headlines from the region and the latest local opportunities for your club. There will be a programme of club development sessions led by experts that will explore the following areas 

  • What are the needs and motivations of your club members and how can you provide an experience that’s right for them?
  • How can you make your club welcoming to a wider range of members?  
  • What can you do to make your volunteers experience meaningful?
  • How can the RYA’s new Club Management Compliance Toolkit help you manage your club?
  • How to secure the funding you need for your club
  • How can you increase yacht racing participation at your club?

The Regional and Home Country conferences
