Refer A Friend – April’s Prize Winner and May’s Prize Draw

Throughout the year, the CA runs our ‘Refer a Friend’ programme giving members the chance to welcome their friends as members and enjoy 20% off the first year’s annual membership1.

As a thank you for growing our cruising community, the referring member receives a £20 voucher2. The voucher can be used for purchases in the CA shop and be spent on cabin accommodation at CA House.

From April to September, we expand the promotion and members have the chance to win some great monthly prizes from one of our marine discount partners.

Congratulations to CA member James Grazebrook, OBE, who won April’s Refer a Friend prize of a Marine Hygiene eco-friendly cleaning bundle worth £151.

James commented, "Carol and I have an Oceanis 45 in the Aegean and we head out there in May to start the season, so Marine Hygiene’s kit will be particularly welcome as we clean the boat for the summer!

"I suggested the Cruising Association to a friend new to the Mediterranean. He’s fresh from sailing around the world and called to pick my brains about regulations in the Med, particularly Turkey and Greece. I shared my knowledge and then showed him different bits of the CA website. He joined and said that RATS was exactly what he needed as a newcomer to the Med! CAptain’s Mate appealed as well. Always my favourite pages."

Now it’s your chance to win in May. Refer a Friend and you could win a Halcyon Yachts branded Musto bag and cap worth £100.

Mark your calendar for the upcoming monthly prizes too:

June – IC-M25EURO Buoyant Marine VHF Radio worth £156 from ICOM
