With RYA membership at an all-time high, with over 107,000 boaters enjoying the great benefits RYA membership affords; from access to specialist boating advice and the very best money saving offers from the 50 plus, RYA Member Reward Partners, there has never been a better time to be a member.
“Who better to spread the word about the benefits of membership than the members themselves”, commented Conor Swift, RYA Membership Development Manager. “Our members are the very best advocates of what RYA membership has to offer and as a way of saying thank you for their continued support and for spreading the word we introduced the Refer a Friend scheme.”
The scheme offers referred new members 25% discount on the price of their chosen membership type; and once the friend or family member has signed up the referring member will receive a special thank gift of either an exclusive RYA branded umbrella or five litre RYA branded dry bag from OverBoard.
RYA member Paul Phillips from Stourbridge, has been both a referee and a refer and commented: “My friend put me forward as his Refer a Friend contact, so that not only could I gain my short range certificate assessors qualification but also enjoy a 25% discount on the joining fee, which was an added bonus.
“On joining I found the newsletter emails interesting and informative and I decided I would refer one of my friends. The gift I received for referring my friend (once they had signed up) was great quality and really useful. Having been on both sides as a referee and referrer; I would say that Refer a Friend is a great scheme and the benefits are great for both parties involved.”
As well as a whole host of benefits, rewards, discounts and offers, every member that joins the RYA adds their voice to the existing 107,000 members in support of the work of the RYA does ensuring that legislators, regulators and other authorities understand and take account of recreational boating activity.
