Club Development

RYA Scotland brought a number of local and national opportunities for clubs and training centres, throughout Scotland, together for the season ahead.

RYA Scotland Development Conference 2019

The 2019 event, organised by the Participation and Development Team of RYA Scotland, took place on Sunday 24th February at the DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow Westerwood Spa & Golf Resort.

The key theme for the day was around 'Ideas for Change' and we were joined by a number of presenters from across the boating and sporting landscape as well as a number of colleagues from RYA including Richard Falk (Training), Kate Fortnam (Planning & Environment) and Jack Fenwick (Racing). Once again we had a number of clubs and centres support the day by telling 'their stories' providing live examples, best practice and potential pitfalls to avoid.

The day was open to all clubs, centres and boating organisations and provided a great opportunity for attendees to connect to others in their local and Scotland-wide networks. It provided an opportunity to share current practice whilst learning from others around key topics that help clubs and centres prepare for the season ahead.

Looking ahead we plan to run a series of three workshops for clubs over next winter:

  • Saturday 16th November 2019 at Glenmore Lodge
  • Saturday 30th November 2019 at sportscotland, Glasgow
  • Saturday 18th January 2020 in Dundee venue TBC

Booking for these events will not be available until the autumn, however if you have any questions then please do not hesitate to contact RYA Scotland on 0137 317 7388 or email
