Not All eBooks

We've carefully constructed meaningful subscription packages at an affordable price, rather than offering a single "all eBook" subscription. This would be too expensive and would also include content that customers wouldn't use.

Please email publications@rya.org.uk with any feedback or suggestions.

New Content and Updates

We'll add any relevant new eBooks to your subscription package as they become available. While your subscription is active, these will show as "Available" within the My eBooks > Owned section of the RYA Books app, and within their respective categories.

If we replace an eBook, you won't be able to download the old version. However, your download will remain in My eBooks > Downloaded within your subscription period.

If we update an eBook, you'll see "Update Available" rather than "Downloaded". Simply tap or click to update.

Subscription Only Content

Depending on your credentials, instructors may be eligible for additional free content, such as relevant syllabus and logbooks and course pack books. This additional content is added to your subscription when your credentials are verified as part of the application process.

As access to instructor-only content is dependent on your individual credentials, please ensure that you use your personal email address when you order, rather than a generic (info@) email address.

If you'd like to purchase a subscription for your school or RYA Recognised Training Centre, or use a generic email address, please be aware that you won't be eligible for instructor-only content.

How to Order

You can purchase any of the eBook subscriptions on our online shop.

Your eBooks will be available for you to download using the RYA Books app. Find out more about How to Download Your RYA eBook.

Please note: Your subscription will be registered to the email address you use to purchase your subscription. An RYA Books account will be created for you, if you don't have one already.

We aim to process instructor-only content  within 2 working days from purchase. You will be notified that it's been added to your account by email. Please contact the eBook team at ebooks@rya.org.uk if you haven't heard from us within two working days.

The End of Your Subscription Period

Your annual subscription period will last for 12 months from the date of purchase. You will be sent an email reminder 3 days before the end of your subscription. After your subscription expires, you'll lose access to subscription content. You'll retain access to any eBooks purchased separately.
