All RYA clubs located in the UK are included in this dataset, correct as of August 2018. The information comes from a constantly evolving RYA database. Those with no location have been given geographic coordinates if possible. Aside from obvious errors, individual club locations have not been quality controlled for accuracy in this dataset update, as Quality Assessment is carried out centrally by the RYA.
RYA clubs are membership organisations affiliated to the Royal Yachting Association. Each tends to specialise in certain types of activity (for example dinghy racing, sail cruising, power-boating), but all are normally open to passing visitors. The facilities provided usually include both alongside berths and swinging moorings but shore facilities are not normally expected to be to commercial standards. Activity takes place throughout the year, and is expected to peak in summer. Used under licence from RYA UK Coastal Atlas of Recreational Boating September 2019.
