RYA and Yachts & Yachting Club of the Year 2018 finalists announced

Voting is now open for the RYA and Yachts & Yachting Club of the Year Award 2018 which recognises and promotes the outstanding achievements of sailing clubs across the UK.

Nominations were received from affiliated clubs up and down the country across five categories which throw the spotlight firmly onto the core values for any successful sailing club.   

The 2018 finalists and winners of each category are:    

  • Dartmouth Yacht Club - Communication 
  • London Corinthian Sailing Club - Increasing Participation 
  • Marconi Sailing Club - Innovation
  • Nottingham County Sailing Club – Facility Development
  • Whitefriars Sailing Club - Inclusivity     

For the first time ever you now have the chance to vote for the sailing club who you think deserves to be named Club of the Year 2018. To find out more about the finalists and to cast your vote visit 

Voting closes on the 20th February 2018.

Finalists are invited to the presentation of the Awards which take place at the RYA Dinghy Show on the 3rd of March (4 p.m. on the main stage) when overall winner will be revealed.      

This year the Panel also decided to award four clubs with Certificates of Commendation, as they have done outstanding work but narrowly missed out on being selected as Finalists.  These clubs are also invited to the Dinghy Show to receive their certificate. 

  •  Carrickfergus Sailing Club 
  •  Rudyard Lake Sailing Club 
  •  Rye Harbour Sailing Club 
  •  Skye Sailing Club 
    "Thank you to all clubs who submitted application forms. The standard that we received was so high that selecting just five finalists was a very difficult task!" explains RYA Club Support Advisor Jackie Bennetts. "The people involved in each one of these clubs have worked hard to create fantastic projects and activities which make it possible for people to enjoy being out on the water at their venue. Don’t miss the chance to cast your vote and have your say in which club will lift the coveted trophy this year.”
