South Devon College Marine Academy offers a range of short courses as a RYA recognised training centre.
Who are RYA?
The Royal Yachting Association (RYA) was set up in 1875 as the Yacht Racing Association, and the RYA has since become the national governing body for dinghy, motor and sail cruising, and all forms of sail racing, RIBs and sports boats, windsurfing and personal watercraft. It is also a leading representative body for inland waterways cruising.
The RYA exists to get more people into boating and watersport activities, promote safe boating practices and raise the standards of yachting and sailing in the UK.
As an RYA-recognised training centre, the South Devon College Marine Academy offers a range of courses to promote safety on the water at all times, whatever your activity.
