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.

As well as ensuring your ongoing validation as an RYA instructor there are many great benefits of being an RYA Member…

Your membership directly supports the RYA's lobbying activities protecting the rights and freedoms of boating in the UK. You’ll also have access to specialist cruising, legal and technical boating advice from our in-house experts, when you need it most. 

As an RYA member you have access to exclusive offers and discounts from over 80 member reward partners, from clothing, personal and boat equipment, to the latest technology, holidays and travel, insurance, magazine subscriptions and boat show tickets, helping you keep down the cost of your boating.

Members also have access to all the latest news and information via the RYA Magazine, website or direct to your inbox with a host of eNewsletters.
