RYA Scotland Annual Awards

The RYA Scotland Annual Awards are a fantastic opportunity for the sailing community in Scotland to celebrate just some of the achievements and the commitment of people within our sport. Without these people and many more like them our sport simply wouldn't exist.

We received a great deal of nominations highlighting some excellent contributions to sailing or boating in Scotland. Our independent judging panel narrowed down the submissions to a shortlist and an eventual winner in each award. Thank you to all those who submitted such excellent and detailed nominations this year.

The 2018 awards took place on the 19th of January 2019 and you can find more details of the event on our News Pages

Details of the 2019 Awards will be posted during the season and are an excellent opportunity to recognise individuals, organisations and clubs in sharing safe, successful and rewarding boating in Scotland.
