RYA Active Marina 


Boat ownership is all about freedom and having fun.  The RYA's Active Marina Programme is designed to help you get more out of life with your boat.

The programme encourages and supports increased berth holder activity by partnering with marinas, RYA recognised training centres, berth holder groups and yacht clubs to establish or enhance a programme of training, cruising and social opportunities.

You can find out more about the RYA Active Marina Programme by watching this video.

You can view the nearest Active Marinas to you and the workshops / events that are being run here.
