Sailability National Conference

The 2020 RYA Sailability National Conference will take place at Wyboston Lakes Executive Centre in Bedfordshire on Saturday 15 February 2020.

Once again we are delighted to be able to offer three RYA and Sport England funded places to all Sailability Sites who are part of the programme. 

Each place includes conference delegate, awards dinner and Saturday night accommodation. All we ask is, if you take up all your allocated free places, one of these goes to a sailor.

Priority booking

Throughout the season all Sailability venues have done some great work in providing activities across the UK and have demonstrated this by providing us with activity figures each month. We are really grateful for the time and effort that everyone puts into reporting, it’s really valuable.  

So we are offering a priority booking period to all the venues who have provided activity within the deadline every month so far, allowing them to secure their free places at the conference.

The Sailability venues rewarded with priority booking will receive an email with a discount code to book their free places two weeks before the event goes live to everyone. The email on 11th November will go to the person we have listed as the contact for submitting monthly activity figures.  

Everyone else will receive their booking discount code when the bookings are open to all on Monday 25 November. Bookings will close on Monday 3 February 2020, or earlier if capacity is reached. 

Carers and PAs

Some delegates will need to bring a carer/PA. We will cover the cost of carer/PAs to accompany their delegate during the day, including lunch, attend the Awards Dinner and accommodation on the Saturday night.

Delegates attending with Carer/PAs will need to contact Melissa Chapman or Connie LeBrun on 023 80 604271 to discuss their needs and obtain the relevant discount code prior to booking.
