Throughout May, June and July all clubs, training centres and marine organisations signed up to the RYA Joining Point programme will be in with a chance of winning some fantastic prizes for their organisation, in the RYA Joining Point Prize Box competition.

Each month the top Joining Point, who has recruited the most new RYA members, will receive a prize box full of amazing prizes.

In May the winner will receive a website review by SocialB to get hints and tips on improving their online presence and some Crewsaver Training Markers.

Then in June, the winner will receive two VHF radios and five Spinlock buoyancy aids, while in July the winning organisation will receive two Spinlock lifejackets and a digital weather station/ Anemometer. Plus, each month's Prize Box will also include an RYA branded Overboard dry bag, RYA branded water bottle and other RYA goodies.

"Our Joining Points are instrumental in helping to spread the word about RYA membership and with more members we can be more influential in protecting the rights of boaters and the sports we all love. This competition is just one way for us to say thank you for all the hard work they put in helping to promote RYA membership", commented Ben Falla, RYA Head of Membership.

Taking part is easy. At the end of each month, the Joining Point who has signed up the most new RYA members will receive that month's winning prize box.

If you're already registered as a Joining Point no action is required, you will automatically be entered into the competition, just make sure you have enough packs and promotional materials to keep you going throughout the competition.

If you're not a registered Joining Point, signing up is simple, visit here and once you're registered you will be sent a unique Joining Point number to match new members to your club.

As well as being automatically entered in the competition you will also receive your regular commission payment for every new member you introduce that signs up using your unique joining point number.

The competition runs until 31 July 2021. The winning clubs will be announced in early June, July and August once the figures have been counted and confirmed.

As a registered RYA Joining Point your organisation receives a commission payment for every new RYA member you sign up that can be fed back into the organisation to help pay for renovations, new kit, towards new boats; the choices are endless.

Commission is paid on a quarterly basis, ranging from £10 for each new Family membership to £2.50 for an Under 18, so the more people you sign up, the more commission you earn.
