RYA Northern Ireland launches consultation process to help inform new strategy

RYA Northern Ireland is calling for anyone who has an interest in boating to take part in an interactive session to help develop the strategy for sailing, boating and windsurfing in Northern Ireland.
02 Dec 22

A high-level summary of the strategy, which will cover the next three to five years, will be shared at RYA Northern Ireland’s Club Conference this weekend (3 December). 

An online consultation process will then open week commencing 12 December and two online consultation sessions will take place on 10 and 12 January. All of these will help inform the development of the next stages of the strategy.

RYA Northern Ireland’s Chief Operating Officer, Greg Yarnall, explains: “We are excited to begin further consultation on our new strategy and are looking forward to working with those who help make our sport happen. 

“As part of this process, we will be sharing and asking for feedback on where we have got to so far. This will include the emerging strategic priorities, our values (beliefs and behaviours) and the guiding principles that will help us when making decisions.”

He adds: “These consultation sessions and online feedback sessions are vital as the strategy needs to feel relatable to the people involved in the sport, as participants or as volunteers, coaches, instructors or officials. We want the whole boating community to feel connected to the strategy and for it to be clear how everyone will be able to contribute to helping the sport prosper over the coming months and years.”

To book a place at the interactive consultation sessions:

Tuesday 10th January 2023 at 7.30pm

Friday 13th January 2023 at 10.00am
