Following on from the recent webinar focusing on pay and play activity, the next in the series will focus on alternative club activity; be it introducing other watersports, mixing up the traditional racing formats or introducing non-competitive activity such as cruises and ‘fun’ training days.

Hosted by Andy Rice, respected sailing journalist, on Tuesday 11 December, 7pm-8pm (GMT), the webinar will include short presentations and a Q&A session with a selection of clubs that have launched innovative initiatives to meet changing demands. The aim is to share insights on their challenges and successes with the wider sailing club community and watersports sector. 

Background

Following their Dinghy Show talks, in May we broadcast a webinar covering Liz Rushall’s and Mark Jardine’s respective talks. These considered the future of dinghy sailing and some recommendations for the dinghy industry to implement.

Subsequently we have received numerous requests to further explore some of the recommendations in more detail. This is the third webinar in the series, the first being the original ‘future of dinghy sailing’ webinar aired in May. The second being the ‘Pay on demand’ webinar which was broadcast in November.

The trends highlight some people being ‘turned off’ by competitive activity, looking for activities which are easier to access and for unique experiences; all of which create challenges and opportunities for sailing clubs.

We’ll hear from three clubs who have experimented with different forms of activity. We’ll hear about the successes and also the challenges along the way.

The webinar will be about an hour long, with opportunities to ask questions and interact with the panel.  Everyone taking part will be sent a link to a recording of the presentation afterwards.
