You are now able to book your place on the RYA Raymarine Yachtmaster Instructor Conference 2013, to take place at the Bournemouth Marriott Highcliff Hotel, 26-27 January 2013. The conference is open to RYA Yachtmaster and Cruising Instructors, Examiners and Principals and this year we are delighted to welcome our guest speakers Roger Towner, the Chief Examiner and Registrar of Shipping for the MCA and Richard Haworth from High Latitudes.

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.

To book your place please contact Bethan Jenkins on 02380 604 183. Booking forms need to be returned by no later than Monday 14 January 2013.

If you are new instructor and haven’t attended the conference you can apply for a subsidised delegate place courtesy of conference title sponsors, Raymarine. If you would like to apply for one of these places please notify Bethan when making your booking.

Last year the conference was a sell out so we recommend you book sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment, please note that place are allocated on a first come first served basis. RYA website
