RYA subs

My subs are due.....

I need the International certificate (boating in Spanish waters) it runs out in 2017. Are there any other reasons to pay the RYA? or do I save the money.

This was discussed a few months ago. In practical terms, you don't really need it - all your tickets remain valid even with no membership. Some argue it's nice to support the RYA etc. I personally haven't bothered this year.

An ICC is about 40 quid without RYA membership, free with. Bearing in mind the membership is about 50 quid a year & the ICC lasts for 5 years, ....you do the maths. That said, I'm happy to pay my RYA subs as I am the RNLI offshore subs, I look on it as a sort of insurance/warm snugly feeling inside

Not sure those figures are correct. I'm pretty sure it's cheaper to join and get a free ICC than to pay for one on it's own.

Not if you keep your subs up for the 5 years between ICC renewals it ain't. Of course the more cynical amongst us would only renew our RYA subs in the ICC renewal year
An RYA membership renewal is 40 if paid by D/debit, an ICC is 40.

Ditto.... Shared my views re the PPR course on another thread, Had a devil of a time when we used them for coding (now with YDSA, much easier to deal with so far).....

I'm possibly just having a little hissy-fit, and its far too boring to cite all the specific gripes, but through the various ways i've had to have contact with them in recent years, i am left with an overwhelming sense of "they need to get their s**t together!"

its not just me then perhaps they have a special cluster dept for dealing with Working Welsh Skippers.

PD I don't ubderstand why you get a warm snuggly feeling from being a member of the RYA I think Ribnet does more for us than the RYA. Personally I get a warm snugggly feeling from a litre of Hennessy VSOP which strangely enough is about the same price.

I like to instruct so I stay as a member. Instructors are encouraged to recruit new members, by way of a backhander, I find in all honesty I can't encourage people to join. I find myself very angry with me over this as every 8 I sign up would earn me a bottle of the aforementioned Amber Gloryjuice

Razorbill. You of all people know better than to get me started about PPR. . I can't remember was it Jilly, Johnny or Singeon's 1st aid ticket that was out of date and therefore meant he couldn't do the thrill rides


I guess my instructing days will soon be over

Ooooh! somebody's tired The RYA might not be perfect but it's all we've got to protect ourselves, & our freedoms from the legislators & other self interested parties.
As far as the RNLI goes, that speaks for itself
