Upcoming conferences

The RYA Training department’s two largest conferences are taking place in the New Year.  

  • RYA Raymarine Yachtmaster™ Scheme Instructor Conference -  26-27 January 2019 - Wokefield House near Reading
    Join us for two entertaining and inspiring days of workshops, talks, and professional development  delivered by our talented team of guest speakers and in-house experts. Share knowledge, up your game, socialise with old friends and make new connections in the state of the art conference centre. 
  • RYA Training Conference -  9-10 February 2019 - Alexandra House near Swindon.
    This vibrant and fun conference is aimed at Principals, Trainers and Coaches within the power, sailing and windsurfing schemes. Packed with exciting talks, workshops and opportunities to develop professionally, it’s the perfect place to network.  

 

Day one of both conferences centres around updates on the schemes delivered by the RYA Chief Instructors plus a choice of two one-hour workshops from a wide selection led by industry experts.  

Lunch and coffee breaks are social affairs where there is plenty of opportunity for networking with like-minded people.  

On the Saturday evening there is an informal sit-down dinner with no set seating plan, so you can continue your networking, catch up with friends and chat to members of RYA staff. Then there’s the chance to relax and unwind in the bar.

The conferences are a brilliant opportunity to stay up-to-date, to see and be seen and to build new contacts. For Principals there is the chance to mingle with other Principals and share ideas, scout for new instructional talent and discuss future instructor training possibilities with RYA Instructor Trainers.  

“The conferences are a brilliant way for delegates to get actively involved in sessions led by experts and we strive to ensure there's something for everyone across our schemes. The sessions aim to deepen knowledge, present fresh perspectives and offer a wide view of the industry, which we hope you will filter down to everyone involved in the RYA Training schemes."  RYA Chief Instructor Rachel Andrews.
