Boaters Meeting – Wednesday 20th June 2018 – Stuart Carruthers, RYA Cruising Manager

Club News, Events | April 7th, 2018 | No comments yet

Marking of lobster pots, red diesel, Brexit, wind farms, Skipper licensing, boat registration, safety afloat, disposal of flares, Brexit, invasive species and other environmental concerns – just a handful of the issues of interest (and influence) for RYA. Did I mention Brexit?

Stuart Carruthers, and Engineer by training, and his team are involved in consultation and representation of RYA’s (and the recreational boating community’s) interests in a wide range of regulatory and technical matters, but also they provide an advice service directly to members on just about anything; boat buying and VAT, foreign cruising requirements, safety equipment, to name but a few.

“As seen on TV”

We all know the RNLI (some of us, more so than we’d like to admit,) but do you know what goes on behind the scenes?

Working alongside the Coastguard and other organisations to educate, influence, supervise and rescue those at risk of drowning;  relying on volunteers and supporters to run the lifesaving services – ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

And what’s new?  Having pioneered developments in lifesaving at sea since 1824, RNLI now is finding new ways to save lives through innovation, data analysis, and new technology.
