Throughout June RYA members will enjoy not one but two special gifts when they sign up their friends and family to RYA membership, with the RYA Refer a Friend scheme.

Refer a Friend rewards existing members for spreading the word about RYA membership.

For every member that refers a friend or family member who decides to sign up as a new member, we will give the referring member an RYA branded flask and Overboard dry bag to say thank.

Not only do the referring members enjoy their free gifts but new members also enjoy a 25% discount off their first year’s subscription, so it’s a win, win for everyone.

“Normally our referring members get a choice of either of the ‘thank you gifts’ but throughout June we’re offering an additional incentive to take part in the Refer a Friend scheme and give them both gifts – so that they don’t have to choose a favourite!” commented Conor Lee-Swift, RYA Membership Development Manager.

“Our members are our biggest advocates and best placed to tell others about the benefits of RYA membership”, Conor continued. “Nothing is more powerful than an existing member sharing their personal experiences and the benefits RYA membership affords them in their boating lives to potential new members.”
