Clubs and class associations are key to delivering training, racing and water access, providing an environment in which thousands of enthusiasts can enjoy our sport.
A significant proportion of this country’s sailors and motor boaters regularly access their sport through the RYA’s network of 1500 affiliated clubs and associations; so, ensuring the continued support and development of clubs and associations is essential to the continuing popularity and growth of all forms of boating.
Here we provide you with all the information you need about RYA affiliation, how affiliation can help support your club or association and the resources available to you, from club development and club management, to finances and legal matters.
When you affiliate to the RYA you become part of the RYA family, a community of like-minded clubs and associations working with the RYA to ensure the ongoing success and growth of club and class activity and all forms of boating across the country.
Your affiliation also supports the RYA’s work protecting your rights and freedoms on the water.
Affiliated organisations have access to a whole host of tools and resources, advice and guidance and exclusive benefits to help support club and class activities and future development.
