RYA Regional Training Days


The RYA has organised Regional Training Days (RTD), supported by Gallagher Insurance, for anyone involved in the practical delivery of activities supported by the RYA small craft schemes to help you get set for the season ahead. 

Join your regional team for a day of personal learning and development. Expertise will be on offer to enhance and inspire your knowledge and practical skillset.  
A comprehensive programme of workshops will be offered across the small craft schemes - Power, Sail, Boardsports. Whichever one you select, the theme will be ‘Creating a great participant experience’ and it will shape the whole day. 

As well as a primary full-group session that will be common to every region, there will be small group sessions and activities, tailored to your region and covering both personal and teaching skills, run by the same delivery team throughout.

Expect to see

  • RYA Chief Instructor Rachel Andrews or Liz McMaster 
  • An RYA Coach Development Race Coach Tutor 

This year’s events are more wide-ranging than ever before, involving your Regional Development Officer, the Sailability and Coach Development teams and RYA Training too. They will provide you with the opportunity to focus on developing your personal competency and refine your instructing and coaching techniques.

Delegates will also receive 40% off all RYA Publications
