Throughout September the RYA ran a special competition where clubs, training centres, marinas and other organisations signed up as Joining Points were in with a chance of winning some great prizes while at the same time earning commission for their organisation.
Thirty three Joining Point organisations took part in the month long competition, who between them introduced 108 new members to the benefits of RYA membership, however it was Aigua Sea School in Mallorca who claimed overall victory signing up 14 new RYA members.
“We are delighted to win the September Joining Point competition. We will continue to support the RYA through promoting its membership, and the importance of the work the organisation does, in the UK and abroad. Thanks for the goodies … what a great prize!” commented Linda Revill, principal at Aigua Sea School.
As well as earning commission for each of the members signed up, Aigua Sea School also clinched the bumper prize package made up of:
- Gill Tarp Barrel Bag
- Bollé Tigersnake sunglasses
- Sailing Mates Coach pack and Sailcloth Wallet from Bulb
- Two tickets to the 2016 London Boat Show
- Two tickets to the 2016 RYA Suzuki Dinghy Show

Competition for the top prize was pretty close with Hollingworth Lake Water Activity Centre coming a close second, introducing 13 new members, and Allabroad Sailing Academy in Gibraltar and Powerboat Traning UK coming in joint third, both signing up 10 new RYA members.
“The competition was just one way for us to say thank you to our Joining Point organisations for promoting the benefits of RYA membership. We’ve been delighted by all the hard work and effort they have put in during the month and we hope they enjoyed the added incentive of a bumper haul of prizes for their organisation”, commented Conor Swift, RYA Membership Development Manager.
