Am I being too cynical ? No
I think you are being too cynical - but I am surprised they aren't insisting that anyone who is delivering training 'in the RYA's name' is a member. I realise the TC is responsible for the quality etc of the training - but I would expect anyone who is an "RYA Instructor" was actually a member of the RYA. Otherwise they only renew every 5 yrs.

Likewise I would assume that race officers and other officials at races would all be RYA members.

Boat handling at all ages should be encourage for everyone and not just people in sailing clubs!
For clarity - Honda Youth Event is open to All RYA affiliated Clubs & Teaching Establishments.

The prize is a boat for YOUR club or Establishment - this is why you must meet this criteria.

The RYAS powerboat committee have arranged two youth events - Castle Semple & Longcrsigs Scout Centre in September .

This IS open to ANYBODY between 8 - 16 who want to try powerboating in a safe controlled manner.

I think I posted the posters for these events here already.

Sheesh!, this one comes around as often as Dan Cooper & hole drilling. I am a member of the RYA, through choice, because I want to. It's not a perfect organisation by any stretch, it is VERY WAFI orientated BUT; it's a pressure group, it's all we've got WRG to a voice. Ultimately us & WAFIS want the same thing, free unencumbered access to the water with a minimum of regulation. We are without doubt the least regulated country in Europe when it comes to leisure boating, & the RYA has played a pretty large part in maintaining this. The RYA acts as a nuclear deterrent to anyone wishing to impose controls or restrictions on our boating activities. You may not think the RYA does much for you personally, but if you look at the leisure boating political landscape here in the UK, most of it has been protected by the RYA. If anyone can make a buck out of us, they will, be it local councils, national park authorities, harbour authorities, national govt. PLA etc. Without the RYA this lot would just walk all over us, MPs & joe public wouldn't give a f**k, why should he, it's only a bunch of rich boaters with too much money.

Personally I'm in no doubt that without the RYA we'd have compulsory boat licensing & registration (renewable annually at an extortionate cost, a la France) Compulsory personal licensing, light dues for leisure boaters etc etc.

Re: RYA Instructor Membership

I am writing to you following a recent decision by RYA Council concerning RYA membership for key stakeholders within the RYA.

Standard practice within virtually all sporting bodies over many years has been to require all those engaged in any stake holding role related to the organisation to be members of the governing body for that sport. Typically this involves instructors, officials and various other roles relating to the sport. The logic behind such an approach is to encourage commitment and interaction between both the individual and the governing body. Clearly it is appropriate for a governing body to maintain a healthy and direct relationship with its key stakeholders. Equally, it is essential for those stakeholders to be able to demonstrate an on-going association with and commitment to their relevant governing body and indeed to the sport.

The RYA has decided to pursue a similar strategy.
I.e. We want your money for doing nothing that we dont do already

Or we want to have some reassurance that you are in tocuh with us so that when standards change we can tell you.

Honda Rib Challenge - The Scottish event will have been the Scottish Finals, you can't have 500 people turning up to compete there needs to be heats to filter down the numbers. So each club is supposed to host its own competition to select its entrants.

Probably as well as being some corporate branding acts a bit like a school uniform and stops it all being a bit of a fashion parade with "Look my Daddy bought me the latest, fanciest lifejacket with rocket boosters etc"...

you can jsut see an adult aboard.
the adult will be an RYA instructor who is dual kill corded.
They will be probably sitting very low in the bow to allow the helm maximum visibility. they slathom round some small grab bouys at speeds you wouldn't even dream of and have to do start stop MOB type manouvres all against the clock with time penalties for hitting things etc.

Yes - this was the the regional final - but as Dave knows this event was NOT well represented ...7 Competitors , hence we are pushing more organised events to try to simulate interest in the Event North of Border. We are hoping to run September and march/april next year.
