Once again we will be running the RYA Affiliated Club Conferences in each of the seven England regions, Scotland and Wales. The England Regional Affiliated Club Conferences will be happening October - December 2017 across the UK.

This year we will be unveiling the regional plans for the next four years and delivering RYA national updates. There will a choice of workshops for you to choose from that could help benefit your club as well as the opportunity to meet other clubs within your region.

The booking link will be sent in a separate email with the times and the agenda for the day. We recommend that once this email is received that you book on to your workshop places as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Places will be limited.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the conference organiser and your regional development officer
