New RYA Search Facility for training

The following has been received from the RYA

We are pleased to announce that our long-awaited new web search is now live on the RYA website.

There are two strands to this new search:

Where’s My Nearest is for people searching for an RYA organisation including training centres, clubs, ICC test centres, Active Marinas, Sailability centres, OnBoard and Team15 clubs.
Which Course is for people who know they want to take course but don’t know which one. They will be guided through the course selection process and when they have chosen their course they can find centres that run it.

So, both searches lead potential customers to a list of the relevant organisations in their chosen area.

Last month we sent information to all training centres about checking their existing details and booking an Option 2 listing if they wanted to. All changes to Option 1 listings, and all Option 2 bookings received here by Wednesday 10 September should have been processed and the results should appear in the new search. Any received after that date will be processed shortly. If you have booked an Option 2 listing but not sent us your logo you should see an ‘Image coming soon’ icon next to your centre’s name until we receive your logo.

If you require any changes to your centre’s listing or to book an Option 2 listing, please go to and complete the relevant form.

If you have any questions about these new searches, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
