Join us at 4pm on Wednesday 14 October for a free webinar to find out the latest news on the RYA’s Brexit lobbying activities directly from members of the RYA’s Cruising, Legal and Government Affairs Team.  

Howard Pridding, RYA Director of External Affairs and Stuart Carruthers, RYA Cruising Manager, will be hosting the online event and will be sharing key updates and information with the audience.    

The event will be covering the latest communications with Government on the Brexit related subjects that RYA members are most concerned about, including: cruising access to the Schengen Area, the Return Goods Relief for boats, the validity of sailing qualifications in the European Union (EU) and changes to border controls.       

Presenter at the webinar, Howard Pridding said: “The aim of this webinar is to keep our members informed with the latest communications between ourselves and Government. Since 2016 we have been urging the Government to review and take action on Brexit subjects affecting recreational boaters. Keeping RYA members regularly updated and included on the latest developments continues to be a priority and we hope that members will be able to attend.”
