 *RYA definitions for Heavy, Medium and Light Use Recreational Routes

Recreational boating, both under sail and power is highly seasonal and highly diurnal. The following definitions have been used

  • Heavy Recreational Routes: - Very popular routes on which a minimum of 6 or more recreational vessels will probably be seen at all times during summer daylight hours. These also include the entrances to harbours, anchorages and places of refuge.
  • Medium Recreational Routes: - Popular routes on which some recreational craft will be seen at most times during summer daylight hours.
  • Light Recreational Routes: - Routes known to be in common use but which do not qualify for medium or heavy classification.  It should be noted that many lightly-used routes are the only routes available and therefore have a considerable local importance.
