Joining Point

Earn commission for your organisation


What is Joining Point?

Joining Point is a commission-based scheme that rewards registered Joining Points with a commission payment for each new RYA member they recruit.

The commission you earn can be fed back into your organisation to help pay for renovations, new kit, towards new boats; the choices are endless. 

The scheme is open to all RYA affiliated clubs, recognised training centres and marine organisations.

How it works

Upon registering as a Joining Point you will be allocated a unique Joining Point code.

Share this code with your members, candidates or customers and when they sign up for RYA membership they will be asked to provide the Joining Point code.

The code will allow us to track that membership back to your club, training centre or marine organisation so that commission can be calculated and paid to the relevant Joining Point.

Commission is paid every quarter for each new RYA member recruited on the following basis:

  • £10.00 for each new Family Membership
  • £7.50 for each new Adult Member
  • £5.00 for each new Under 25 Member
  • £5.00 for each new Under 18 Member
