Last hosted by the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club in 2006, the forthcoming eighth ICOYC Commodores’ Forum will feature a week of activities packed with six business sessions and socials events as well as a partner programme.

As John McNeill, President of the ICOYC describes, 'These forums are an opportunity to engage in discussions with peer clubs on issues and opportunities of mutual interest and discover how others may deal with the same challenges from time to time. '

'The importance of this event cannot be underestimated and the Club is very proud to again be playing host.' adds RHKYC Commodore, Joachim Isler.

To date, over 70 visitors from 29 yacht clubs and 16 countries have confirmed their attendance.

Each discussion topic will include insightful presentations, a Q and A session, and breakout group discussions - all carefully designed to ensure each person gets the maximum benefit out of each topic.

The topics are
(1) Ways to Recruit, Develop and Retain Young Members and Top Sailors
(2) Sponsorship and Long Term Finance
(3) Club Management
(4) Ways to Develop and Sustain Race Support - Effective Race Management
(5) Dealings with Community and Government
(6) Succession Planning and Leadership Training
