Yachtmaster Instructor Conference 2012
During the conference you will have the opportunity to attend expert led workshops and discussion groups and it is also the perfect opportunity for you to have your say, share your thoughts and give feedback on various topics as well as hear about updates planned for the RYA cruising schemes.
'The RYA Yachtmaster Instructor conference is a fantastic opportunity for instructors to catch up with friends and for new ones to make important contacts within the industry. The last two years the conference has sold out by the first week of January so don’t leave your booking to the last minute.
'The industry continues to change at a frenetic pace and this is a great opportunity for our instructors to hear about what is happening both in the UK and overseas. We have had a busy year and we look forward to sharing the many developments with you. At the same time RYA training department personnel look forward to the opportunity to hear suggestions and feedback from the backbone of the RYA Cruising scheme – our network of instructors and examiners. I hope to see as many of you there as possible' commented RYA Training Manager and Chief Instructor, Richard Falk.
As part of the conference there are also a number of visiting exhibitors who will be providing special offers for attendees including a 35% discount on all Imray charts and significant discounts on RYA Publications and DVDs.
