RYA Cruising Conference goes virtual for 2021

by Emma Cotton 23 Dec 2020 16:22 UTC 21 March 2021

The Royal Yachting Association's (RYA) annual Cruising Conference will take place as an online event next year on 21 March 2021.

The conference promises to cover the issues that matter most to cruisers, including post-Brexit guidance, training insights, real-life stories from fellow cruisers, as well as the latest developments in safety and more.

Although the event cannot be held in-person this year the conference will still deliver informative and eye-opening talks from a range of speakers. There will also be opportunities for the audience to get involved and a chance to put questions to the experts.

The exhibition area and on-demand talks at the conference will be open to delegates from 9am to 2.30pm with the live streaming sessions running from 9.30am to 12.30pm. The exciting range of topics and speakers for the event will be announced by the RYA in the New Year.

Stuart Carruthers, RYA Cruising Manager, commented: "This is the first time that the RYA Cruising Conference has been held virtually and we're really excited about the benefits that the online event management programme can offer, particularly in terms of being able to pre-record content that will enable delegates to visit more sessions that previously may have clashed on a live event timetable. Being a virtual event also means that delegates can join the event from across the globe, making it the most accessible RYA Cruising Conference yet.

"We have a broad range of speakers and workshops lined up for the day, from cruising sailors to technical specialists and RYA experts. We look forward to sharing the full conference programme very soon."

Booking for the 2021 RYA Cruising Conference is expected to go live in early January. For all the latest conference news visit the RYA Cruising Conference page or follow the Royal Yachting Association on Facebook and Twitter.
