With the summer months just around the corner what better time to get your hands on an RYA branded cool bag, perfect for taking on-board and keeping drinks and snacks cool out on the water.

As part of special promotion, throughout May if you’re an RYA member, when you refer your friends and family to sign up as RYA members through the Refer a Friend scheme, not only will you have the choice of either an RYA branded umbrella or Overboard drybag, we’ll also throw in an RYA cool bag, giving you two special gifts for every new member that signs up.

The RYA’s Refer a Friend programme rewards existing members for spreading the word about RYA membership to their friends and family.  “Members are at the heart of everything we do at the RYA.  If we are providing members with great service, support and benefits then they are more likely to tell their friends and family about it.  With that in mind we want to thank them for helping us grow membership and have more people enjoying the benefits membership offers to everyone with a passion for boating,” commented Conor Swift, RYA Membership Development Manager.

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

Along with a whole host of benefits, rewards, discounts and offers, every member that joins the RYA adds their voice to the existing 110,000 plus members in support of the work of the RYA does ensuring that legislators, regulators and other authorities understand and take account of recreational boating activity. 

“The more members we have the more powerful our voice when working to protect the rights of members and the wider boating community,” Conor added.
