Facilities Survey

Help us gain a better understanding

So that we have a better understanding of the challenges you are facing, and the trends impacting affiliated clubs we would be very grateful if you could complete the RYA Facilities Survey

The survey was previously known as the Vital Signs survey and last conducted in 2016, with a specially adapted Coronavirus edition in 2020.   The survey has been designed to ask only the questions most relevant to your organisation and should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete provided you have the necessary information to hand. If you don't have all the information you need, you can return to the survey using the same computer to fill in the missing data.

The questions cover the following topics -

  • Legal & Tax Status
  • Owned and Rented Premises
  • Facilities
  • Clubhouse/Centre Buildings
  • Rates
  • Activity Programmes
  • Equipment
  • Boating Waters
  • Moorings
  • Constraints & Threats


We also have included questions about club management systems so we gain a greater understanding of clubs use and demand for these online tools.

You will have had an email sent to your club contact but you can also complete the survey here
