We are the national body for dinghy and yacht racing, motor and sail cruising, RIBs and sportsboats, powerboat racing, windsurfing and personal watercraft and a leading representative body for inland waterways cruising.

The RYA’s primary objectives are:

• sustaining and defending recreational boaters’ freedoms and rights

• promoting responsible and sustainable boating • increasing access and opportunity for all to participate.

We set and maintain an international standard for recreational boat training through a network of RYA-recognised training centres, world-class courses and educational material.

Our coaching and development schemes actively support over 600 of our country’s top sailors, from talented juniors to Olympic, Paralympic and World champions.

The RYA is responsible for one of the UK’s most successful Olympic medal winning sports.
