I just booked a Neilson holiday and saved 150 as I was an RYA member.

Hmmmmm ?

I am waiting for an insurance quote via the RYA website. If they give a good quote then I will renew (seems only fair).
But I know from experience that having an out side body on your side if you need it legally, it does help.

As far as the RNLI goes, that speaks for itself
I thought he was suggesting that a contribution to your favorite on-line forum is always welcome and may be seen as good value for money!

RYA Membership - what's is it worth?

The following link is "hot off the press" and relates to Conor Swift - RYA Membership Development Manager thoughts on this subject.

Appears I am wrong unlike the RYA to miss a trick on collecting cash.
Seems daft to me as if you support the scheme and want to teach it why not join and make use of membership benefits.
Learn something new every day
