Cruising & Yachtmaster Instructors

Instructor Conference

This annual conference held towards the beginning of each year is a great opportunity to meet the RYAS team, keep up to date with the latest news within instructing for both centres and sailing clubs. It is also a day full of CPD workshops with great learning opportunities to those new and old to instructing.

Benmore Trophy

A great way to celebrate a successful season on the water RYAS runs this regatta as a fun experience to all coaches and instructors who wish to join. A chance to meet your peers and share tips to progress your own sailing and teaching.

Club Visit Days – CPD 

We hope to make CPD more accessible and cheaper for the volunteer coaches and instructors by visiting active clubs and running single day CPD programmes specifically targeted to the needs of the club. These clubs will be identified by them expressing an interest in hosting a day or by the RDOs who will advise on what the clubs needs are. These can also be organised by a group of clubs if they wish to host a day for all their local coaches or instructors. If you have a group of instructors that are looking at organising one of these days or an evening talk please contact to see what assistance can be offered.
