US equivalent of RYA?
Is there an organisation in the US which is similar to the RYA (Royal Yachting Association) in the UK? By that I mean an organisation who aside from representing the sailing masses, also offers various training courses which approved schools around the country then deliver. In the UK this would be things like Competent Crew, Day Skipper and Yachtmaster for example.
