Rally reports from last season are here. At our AGM on 4/5th February (draft report can be found here) , a provisional list of rallies for the year was agreed. This can be seen below and will be updated as the rallies develop.
This year’s programme will be managed by a new team consisting of new captain, Tony Wildig, secretary Peter Roberts and treasurer Keith Bunker (who was elected last year).
|The First Rally of the season is scheduled to take place at Fowey from Friday 28th to Sunday 30th April and we hope as many of you as possible will be able to attend weather permitting.
The schedule of events is as follows:
Friday 28th April Yachts arrive and will be advised by the Fowey Harbour Authority which Pontoon has been allocated to us. There may the necessity to raft up. Carl Stansfield, our past Port Co-Ordinator will be on had to give each yacht an information pack covering the following items: Sources of victuals, diesel and chandlery, local tide table, possible river explorations, waterside eateries, possible day trips outside the harbour and co-ordinates of relevant locations.There will be a “Pontoon Party” with wine and other beverages supplied by the MOA. Harbour dues will be payable directly to the Harbour Master on arrival. The evening will be free to do as you wish. The water taxi service will be available and we are hoping to be able to negotiate a favourable rate for the return service.
Information will appear here as the rally develops
Events to come in 2017
You can now order a range of leisurewear such as rugby shirts, polos etc, in addition to waterproof crew bags with the SW logo and your boat name embroidered* on them direct from the Kitz UK site. If you look at the master catalogue of Kitz UK and see other items that you would think we should add to the bespoke list, please contact John.Oldham@moodyowners.org
* Transfers rather than embroidery will be used on crew bags to preserve waterproof nature of bags
Please note that Kitz UK is an external company and apart from providing this leisure ware, has no relationship to the MOA
