Medway/Swale Boating Conference, Saturday 9 March 2019

Following the success of our previous Spring Conferences in 2013, 2015 and 2017, our 2019 conference will focus on the Future of our Clubs, particularly our sailing clubs.

The venue will again be the splendid St George’s Centre at Chatham, which can accomodate up to 200 (plus an exhibition) in surroundings redolent of our maritime history. An impressive set of exhibitors will complement the speakers.


Once again we are grateful for the sponsorship of Medway Council for use of the venue.
