At this time of year the RYA Scotland team are usually in preparation for Scotland’s Boat Show. While we are sad that we will not be there this year to meet with members, chat about the season and answer questions about a whole range of boating queries, we can still provide some great membership offers.
Throughout October alongside the special gifts in the RYA membership Refer-a-Friend offer, in Scotland we also have prizes to be won, a unique discount on RYA membership as well as information on RYA training and what to look for when buying a new boat.
Join us on Facebook @RYAScotland to hear more about our virtual boat show membership offers.
We will be kickstarting the month with some Green Blue competitions as we want to encourage everyone to do a little bit for the environment in their local area and to promote sustainable boating in a range of ways.
Starting this weekend on Saturday 3rd October we are asking you to do a shoreside litter collection where you enjoy getting on the water in your local area. You can do this as part of an organised litter survey by the likes of Keep Scotland Beautiful or simply share what you saw!
You of your family may have some top tips for making your boating more sustainable and we would love to hear your ideas. We have prizes on offer for a 12 and under category so hopefully you can get get involved this weekends.
Add your picture or video to the comments of our competition post on Facebook or you can email your entry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have two adult and two U12 prizes up for grabs with the litter patrol entries going into a draw and the RYA Green Blue team choosing the winner of any sustainable boating tips entries!
Over the 9th-11th October when the Scotland’s Boat Show was planned we will be offering £10 off RYA personal membership along with the chance to win a bumper prize including a Spinlock Deckvest Lite+, an Overboard rucksack, Chilli water bottle along with other goodies. Over the month we will be talking about what to consider when buying a new boat and the types of RYA Training on offer to you if you are new boating.
