RYA Affiliated Club Conferences


These conferences are an opportunity for RYA Affiliated Clubs to learn more about the RYA services that are available and how these services can benefit your club and members.

This year's conferences are about 'Putting people first'. That means understanding what your members, volunteers and new sailors need, and putting that at the forefront of your decision making. Whether you want to grow your membership, increase your volunteer base, develop your instructors and race coaches or simply get better at retaining members of all ages, interests and abilities, you will leave with the ideas and information you need to make it happen.
