On the stand
The RYA has a wealth of knowledge and information available for visitors, from getting out on the water with the whole family, to improving your boating and finding the right training course for you.
RYA Shows and Promotions Manager Celia Edgington said: "We're really looking forward to returning to the London Boat Show which provides a fantastic opportunity for us to meet members of the boating community.
"On the stand you'll find the RYA experts ready to share their advice and answer any of your questions from boating abroad or buying a second-hand boat or simply find out more about all the great offers available to RYA members from more than 50 member reward partners.
"This year the London Boat Show also features the Boating & Watersports Holiday Show, so if you're inspired to escape the UK then why not find out about the 696 RYA Training Centres aboard where you can get your qualification with guaranteed sunshine!" Celia concluded.
As well as the useful free available advice on the stand, you can also pick up your RYA publications with a 20% boat show discount for RYA members. On the stand you can trial the ever growing series of eBooks, with their interactive content great for enhancing your skills or to prepare for an exam.
The brand new RYA Weather Handbook will be one of the many titles available to take home and you can also enter a free prize draw to win a Dryrobe so you can stay warm and dry whatever the weather. Visitors of all ages can also test their skills on the RYA knot wall.
And finally, don't forget to join us on the stand on Wednesday, 10 January when we reveal the winner of the prestigious RYA Yachtmaster™ of the Year award. The winner of the esteemed annual award will be recognised for demonstrating outstanding skills and knowledge as a skipper and will have exhibited their outstanding expertise during their Yachtmaster exam.
The RYA is delighted once again to be able to offer all members a free ticket to the London Boat Show as well as up to three additional tickets at the discounted price of £12.00 each (a transaction fee of £1.95 applies for purchased tickets).
Members can take a break from the hustle and bustle of the show and relax in the exclusive RYA members lounge located in the Platinum Suite, which serves food and beverages throughout the day.
Sign up or renew your RYA membership during the show and you can choose one of three exclusive show gifts including an RYA cool bag, beach bag or RYA power banks. What's more, sign up your friends and family to RYA membership and you'll enjoy not one but two special thank you gifts and your friends will enjoy a discount on their first year's membership.
