    Aimed at Principals and instructors withing the sail and motor cruising schemes. Two days of networking, workshops and professional development at Wokefield Place Conference Centre, Berkshire.
  • RYA Training Conference  - date TBC
    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 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 and hand-picked exhibitors.

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 conference is 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 your peers 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.
