Registering your MyRYA account


Having a MyRYA account linked to your RYA membership/reference number will enable you to access certain areas of the site which are restricted to groups such as members, qualification holders or representatives of clubs or training centres. 

To create an account, please click on ‘My RYA’ in the top right of the home page, then click on ‘Register’.

Select ‘Membership or RYA reference number account linking':

You should then see your details on screen.
Complete any missing required fields (marked with a *)
Set your password
Choose if you wish to receive the InBrief newsletter
Agree to the terms and conditions
Tick the ‘I’m not a robot’ box
Select ‘Register’

Once your registration is complete you will be taken to MyRYA where you have options to update your personal details, change your password and sign up to receive newsletters etc.

There is section in MyRYA for Account Linking. If you have followed the above process successfully, you will not need to link your account – it has already been done.

Please note that the website refreshes every 4 hours. So, if you don’t have access to the areas you require straight away, please try again later. If after 4 hours you still don’t have access to those areas please email with specific details of what you are trying to access, along with any error messages and which email address you are using to sign in.

Can’t make this work?

If you see a message saying that your email address is already linked to a different email address:

If you are not aware of an existing account using that email address please email with your RYA membership/reference number and the email address that you used when trying to register your account.

Forgotten your password?

If you are already registered but are having trouble signing in, it may be that you need to get your password reset.

On the sign in page there is a 'Forgotten your password?' link. Click on this and enter your email address. If you have an account, instructions on how to reset your password will be emailed to you.

If this does not work, please contact us via this form for assistance, giving your RYA membership/reference number and the email address that you are using to sign in.
