Competitions and Awards
The RIN is always looking for new and exciting ways to stimulate interest and involvement in navigation on land, in the air, at sea and in space.
At present it has a range of major annual competitions – including TopNav (North and South), the New Navigators' competition and the New Professional Navigators' Award.
