RYA NI to Stage Sailing Club Conference in December

21st November 2017
Carrickfergus Sailing Club on Belfast Lough is the venue for this year's RYANI annual affiliated club conference Carrickfergus Sailing Club on Belfast Lough is the venue for this year's RYANI annual affiliated club conference

The RYANI annual affiliated club conference on Belfast Lough will take place this year on Saturday 2nd December 2017 at Carrickfergus Sailing Club. It is open to all RYA affiliated clubs to come and hear updates from the RYANI, including an update on the Insights Data from a recent club census.

Delegates can take part in a wide range of workshops, from becoming an RYA Training Centre to growing racing activity, running Honda Youth RIB events to improving your Club’s website/social media, to a workshop about an effective committee, plus many more. The day runs from 9.15am-5pm.

The event is sponsored by RYA membership and Sport NI Lottery fund.

The event is being run earlier than normal as feedback from previous conferences indicated clubs had little time to put into action new ideas gleaned from the conference.

Active Clubs Coordinator Lisa McCaffrey said: “The Affiliated Club Conference is a great opportunity to network with other clubs, learn and share ideas for the coming season and to gain more information on what the RYANI aim to achieve.
