Affiliation fees


We use affiliation bands based upon the subscription income a club or class receives from full members to allocate each organisation into one of 11 bands. with each band charged an affiliation fee. We also have a separate band for certain commercial organisations and a zero fee band for Associations of Affiliated Clubs, and Forces Clubs etc. who are members of the relevant Umbrella Association.

In 2022 affiliates were granted 3 free months of affiliation and for 2022-2023 affiliation fees were frozen. Affiliations fees in 2023 were increased at a below inflation rate, however due to increasing requirements and rising costs the board have taken the decision to increase affiliation fees on average by 9% for 2024-2025.

The income from full members excludes income from membership categories such as youth/junior/cadet membership, overseas members, etc. and it excludes commercial income such as bar or regatta income.

The RYA Affiliation subscription year runs from April to March. Invoices for affiliation fees are issued in March preceding the year to which they relate.

We use the most up to date data we have on record for each organisation, in order to determine the subscription income from full members. In order to keep our information up to date, we periodically audit affiliated clubs to check they are in the correct band.

If you think your organisation is in the wrong band, we would be happy to audit to address any concerns. In the first instance, please contact our membership department by e-mailing or phone on 023 8060 4146.
