Unlike other recreational yachting organisations such as the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) or Yachting Australia (YA) or the American Sailing Association (ASA), IYT is a professional yachting organisation that is run by professional mariners for professional mariners and we issue professional yachting certificates (where applicable). No other organisation offers training on a global scale with more courses in more countries, in more languages through more schools and with more Government approvals than IYT.
