RYA talks for the experienced and for beginners

The RYA are launching a new “Get the Knowledge” campaign to encourage more people to “to match their on-water experiences with off-water learning”.

They are encouraging more people to sample some of the RYA’s vast range of books, which now cover almost every element of boating and are written by experts in the field, some of them MBY contributors too.

“RYA Publications believe everyone, from beginner to the most experienced, can benefit from the expert advice and information contained in the wide range of RYA books,” they say.

The initiative is launched at the Collins Stewart London Boat Show at Excel, which starts this Friday.

Visitors to the show will be eligible for a 25% discount on all RYA books on Friday.

Meanwhile on the main stage the RYA are running a series of talks for newcomers to boating and the more experienced.

RYA Training Manager James Stevens will be giving a talk entitled ‘Start to Navigate’ on Saturday 12 January at 11am.

He will also be giving tips on ‘How to pass your Yachtmaster’ on Monday 14 January at 11am.

Environmental group the Green Blue will be talking about how we can all make our boating more environmentally friendly, with the help of yachting journalist Tom Cunliffe, on Friday 18 January at 16.30.
