dave-kitchen-webWe have 97 members, of which over half keep their boats in North Wales.

The size of our sailing area (and the tides!) makes weekend sailing in company tricky, but we enjoy lively social get-togethers and do plan some sailing events!

This year we are hoping that members will enjoy the planned visits to other ports and have a sail with local members on their boats.

We currently have three port officers, based in Liverpool, Conwy and Whitehaven and are looking for volunteers for other locations such as Holyhead, Pwllheli, Isle of Man, and Fleetwood. Please contact the Branch Captain, Dave Kitchen, if you are interested and would like to find out more.

The Port Officers are a useful contact for members to seek local advice and information when planning a visit to a new sailing area. They also have an important role in promoting the MOA locally. It’s beneficial, too, when MOA members encourage local Moody owners to join, by explaining the benefits and fun that we believe our membership brings.

We particularly welcome new Moody owners to get in touch with one of the contacts if they would like to meet up with other owners and come along to one of our events.

We hope many of you will join in with the activities this season and enjoy the sailing and social aspects of our friendly MOA branch.
