Launching Trolleys

The Directors agreed that all trolleys must be tagged to identify the boat by number and surname so we can spot boats that have not been registered or may be wrongly berthed. This will also aid bringing the correct trolleys down the slipway to boats coming off the water.

New Members

A warm welcome to new members

The RYA have launched their strategy to break down barriers and perceptions around sailing and boating, open up to new audiences and showcase the positive impact watersports can have on health, well-being and in protecting our connection with nature. The focus will be around six core outcomes, around which an annual impact report will be produced to measure progress:

Inclusion: An environment where everyone feels welcome, safe and valued

Inspiration: More people are inspired to explore and learn through being on the water

Engagement: More people stay involved in sailing and boating for longer, growing their commitment over time

Influence: A leading voice for sailing, boating and related matters nationally and internationally

Connections: Collaborate and align efforts with partners to create greater impact

Sustainability: Meaningful reduction in our impact on climate and biodiversity while inspiring positive action by others

The RYA will continue to support its excellent network and work with sector partners to help them to be ready for the future, understand the role they can play, and be part of the journey.
