RYA Coastal Atlas of Recreational Boating

What is it: 

There are 5 layers available:

  • General boating areas - replaces the previous ‘racing areas’ and ‘sailing areas’.
  • Sailing Clubs
  • Training Centres
  • Marinas
  • Recreational AIS intensity - replaces the previous ‘recreational cruising routes’.

All the data are covered by the ‘RYA UK Coastal Atlas of Recreational Boating - September 2019’ – see link in ‘Data Sources’ tab below.
