Introducing the Haven Knox-Johnston
Volunteer of the Year Award 2024

Founded in 1935, the Royal Naval Sailing Association (RNSA) is a Service Sports Association and charity that delivers the sport of sailing and associated activities for the Royal Navy, Royal Marines and their associated reserve forces. Over the years 1000’s of members have volunteered their time to the RNSA and we are delighted to work with the RNSA to recognise the efforts made by many!

It’s quite simple, but we cannot do this without YOU! Whether you’re a member of the RNSA or not, you may know someone worth of such award and we want to hear from you.

Simply nominate a RNSA volunteer who you feel has gone above and beyond their remit. Whether its the length of time that individual has volunteered their time or something exceptional that stands out.

To nominate, just navigate your way to the bottom of this page and complete the form.
