Boat ownership is all about freedom and having fun and through a programme of events in your marina you and your crew will be able to take part in training workshops, tailor made to build your knowledge and boost your confidence, and enjoy cruises and social events with other berth holders.

We can help you enjoy your boating more

Boat ownership is all about freedom and having fun. The RYA's Active Marina Programme is designed to help you get more out of life with your boat. The programme encourages and supports increased berth holder activity by partnering with marinas, RYA recognised training centres, berth holder groups and yacht clubs to establish or enhance a programme of training, cruising and social opportunities.


RYA recognised training centres provide the best training in the world for boaters. Through your local RYA training centre, the programme provides you with practical and shorebased workshops at your marina, aimed at increasing competence and confidence out on the water.

'Cruise in Company'

Cruising in company is a relaxed and enjoyable way to extend your cruising horizons with the added bonus of the camaraderie of a small flotilla. As well as benefitting from the experience and knowledge of others, it also gives you the opportunity to socialise with other boat owners and berth holders.

Meet the Neighbours

Marinas are fantastic places to meet like-minded families and crew. The Active Marina Programme helps to set up and develop berth holder groups for social events and mutual support and advice.
