The Canadian Radio Yachting Association (CRYA) is Canada’s governing authority for radio sailing. CRYA is affiliated to Sail Canada – Canada’s governing body for sailing. CRYA is designated as the Delegated National Member (DNM) for radio sailing in Canada. As DNM for Canada, CRYA is also affiliated to the International Radio Sailing Association (IRSA) – which is affiliated to World Sailing for administration of radio sailing world wide.
The CRYA administers hull registration numbers for the international classes and nationally recognized fleets, manages membership and assigns regional, ranking and national championship events.
Any model boat club in Canada that wishes to hold yacht racing may affiliate to the CRYA to be recognized as an organizing authority as required under the Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS).
Besides being Canada’s radio sailing authority, and all the technical administration that comes with that authority, the CRYA brings together people from all parts of Canada to enjoy a sport that can be enjoyed by young and old. The social aspects of participating in this sport can be very rewarding, talking boats, building boats, and sailing radio controlled boats, can be enjoyed by all.
