The Board of RYA Cymru Wales approved the approach for the development of the 2021-2025 Strategy in February 2020. The previous plan ran to 31 March 2021 and the new plan became effective from 1 April 2021.
The Covid-19 pandemic had created an environment in which the development of a four-year plan had become extremely challenging. There is a risk that publishing a four-year strategy too early would result in a plan that lacked the appropriate level of ambition and / or delivers a plan that quickly becomes irrelevant.
The proposed revised approach comprises a 12month Interim Plan followed by a full plan that takes RYA Cymru Wales to 2025. This timeline aligns to the RYA Strategic Development plan.
