Together on the water


I am a lifelong supporter of the work, particularly the training offered by RYA and the need to have watersports represented at a local, national and international level. The RYA provides a great range of support and information, easy to access, well presented and usually up to date! Keep up the good work representing the interests of all watersports, continue the policy of education rather than legislation and continue to stress equality and fairness, accessibility and ability, achievement and recognition.
