We believe that instructors should be fully engaged with the sport they are teaching, so membership of the RYA or the National Governing Body for your boating activity in your country of residence is required in order for you to qualify or revalidate as an RYA instructor.

All RYA members enjoy discounts on clothing, personal and boat equipment, the latest technology, holidays and travel, insurance, magazine subscriptions and boat show tickets.

Our Accredited category is especially for RYA instructors, race officials, Level 2 and 3 race coaches, commercial endorsement holders, British Youth Sailing and World Class Programme sailors. As a thank you for your hard work and dedication to the RYA's training schemes, Accredited members receive a range of enhanced benefits and rewards from a selection of our partners including Spinlock, Bolle, Slam, Sebago, Ocean Safety, Gill and Musto.
