Covid-19 Crisis and the RYA

Unread post by davidb »

The RYA confirmed that representing members’ interests is of paramount importance during this time. As a first step, hopefully all clubs are are aware of and are referring members to the RYA C-19 website hub which is updated almost every day and answers many more frequently asked questions: ... id-19.aspx

There are specific sections relevant to Clubs: ... dance.aspx

And also for personal members and recreational boaters in general: ... aters.aspx

A number of points have raised by the Chairs of English Regions upon behalf of members in their regions and the responses are set out below:

Insurance: The RYA have been in regular correspondence with Gallagher’s. They fully understand the impact and are writing individually to a number of clubs with specific needs
Clubs without premises They are able to apply for SE grants, and additional support.
Marina / Harbour access and fees: The RYA are in direct contact with THYA and Government on this issue and hope to have more clarity on access this week. Meanwhile TYHA have assured us that none of their members will be attempting to profit from the crisis by charging inappropriate fees
Extension of Club subscription period: The Board is meeting on 30th April and will discuss this topic then.
MCA extension: this has been confirmed for Coded vessels, details here. ... 20FAQs.pdf

Please share as widely as possible across your networks and encourage clubs to read the advice ... demic.aspx,

Kind regards


Hon Secretary
