The Royal Yachting Association is an organisation which represents the interests of those interested in boating.

 

The RYA was formed in 1875 at a meeting of 35 people in London.  Click here to read an article from the Autumn 2000 issue of RYA Magazine, about the RYA & apos;s first steps and evolution into the organisation we know today.

 

The RYA is the national association for all forms of sailing and windsurfing, motor boating, sports boats, personal watercraft and powerboat racing.  It is recognised by all Government offices as being the negotiating body for the water activities it represents.
