Pictured is Jane Hill, SYC Junior Chairperson, receiving her RYA Outstanding Contribution Community Volunteer Award from Princess Anne at the RYA AGM and Awards Ceremony in London on 25 November 2021.

The Royal Yachting Association (RYA) represents the interests of recreational boaters of all kinds as well as offering advice and guidance to affiliated clubs. Its boating qualifications are nationally recognised - SYC is an accredited RYA Training Centre. The RYA Honours and Awards Panel seeks nominations annually for individual volunteers, and has recognised Jane for her especial contribution to the sport of sailing. We offer Jane our warmest congratulations.

As Jane relinquishes the SYC Junior Chair to Helen Scott, we thank her for her long-standing contribution and are pleased to hear that she will retain an active role in the training of our Junior sailors
