The British National Yachting Archive is a membership organisation, membership being by personal or corporate subscription. Funds will be used to further the work of the Archive and jointly fund grant-aided projects which offer less than 100% support.

Naturally, we will produce periodic communications concerning our work and organise events for members. However, please note that ALL communication will be electronic, in keeping with the "virtual" nature of the project and to ensure that funds can be directed to the main purposes.

Why Join?

To ensure that knowledge of the massive contribution that our sport has made to the country is maintained and raise the media profile so that it can continue to be supported and recognised.
