Our annual conferences offer opportunities for those working within the RYA Training schemes to keep up-to-date with information from the RYA Chief Instructors and the broader RYA team. With workshops from industry experts and the chance to speak with hand-picked exhibitors, there’s also plenty of time for networking and catching up with old friends.

“The conferences are a brilliant opportunity for delegates to get actively involved in sessions led by experts. We strive to ensure there’s something for everyone, across all the RYA Training schemes, with workshops and presentations to deepen knowledge, present fresh perspectives and offer a broad view of the industry. We recommend that anyone working within any of the RYA Training schemes attend their relevant conference as frequently as possible and hope that the information shared will filter down to everyone within the RYA Training network.” -  Richard Falk, RYA Director of Training and Qualifications.

Upcoming conferences

In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we are continuing to review all RYA events. Due to the uncertainty of the situation, we have made the decision to host the 2021 RYA Raymarine Yachtmaster Scheme Instructor Conference and RYA Training Conference supported by Gallagher as one virtual event and there will be no physical conferences taking place next year.
