RYA Community Awards

RYA shines spotlight on boating’s unsung heroes

The RYA Community Awards are given across three categories: Lifetime Commitment, Outstanding Contribution and Youth and are presented to outstanding individuals for their commitment and services to boating at club or grassroots level.

One winner to be awarded a Lifetime Commitment Award for almost 40 years of volunteering is Anthony Forster from Shotwick Lake Sailing. Anthony served as commodore for 20 years and has been Training Principal since 1992 continuing to work tirelessly on the club’s behalf.

Anthony said: “It’s pleasing to know that my efforts over the last 37 years have been appreciated and recognised and I feel honoured to have received this award. My time on the committee, through many good times and some bad, has given me great satisfaction, as has knowing that I’ve helped to develop the club as a successful, family friendly place where people of all abilities are welcome”.
