The governing body for all forms of Sailing and boating in Scotland is currently on the look out for our next Honorary Treasurer (Non-executive Director – voluntary role).

We are one of the UKs leading practitioners of equality holding the Sports Councils Equality Group ‘Advanced Standard’ – the only organisation in Scotland to do so.

We are looking for a progressive individual who is passionate about growing and developing an organisation which has a fantastically divers portfolio.  You will be helping the Olympians of the future just as much as helping our network of clubs grow and thrive.

Absolutely not just counting the beans – sociable committee, active community,  occasional soaking likely.

Financial background essential, experience in boating can be provided if desired  🙂

Might this be you or someone you know?

More info on our website or message me directly.

About RYA Scotland

The Royal Yachting Association Scotland (RYA Scotland), is the governing body in Scotland for all forms of dinghy and yacht racing, motor and sail cruising, RIBs and sports boats, windsurfing, canal boats, and personal watercraft.  We refer to these disciplines collectively as ‘boating’.  Boating takes place wherever people take to the water in boats.  This can be on purpose built facilities and reservoirs, inland waterways or canals, natural fresh water lochs, rivers, estuaries, coastal areas and on the open sea.


Our purpose is to promote and protect safe, successful and rewarding boating in Scotland.  We represent a community of about 70,000 people actively engaged in boating activity in Scotland, over 20,000 of whom are members of our affiliated clubs. We support nearly 300 local clubs and training centres, the majority of which are within Scotland’s coastal communities and inland waterways and work with a diverse range of partners to achieve the outcomes described in our Strategic Plan.


RYA Scotland is volunteer-led with up to 60 volunteers engaged in our committee structure at any one time.
