Guidance on Events

Covid 19 and our Social Programme

Update March 2021 

The UK government and the devolved administrations and many other Governments around the world are beginning to relax the rules put in place to minimise the spread of Covid 19.

 When the pandemic first hit in the Spring of 2020 your General Committee agreed that all MOA  social events should be cancelled and issued guidance to Branch and Chapter Captains to that effect. Notices of Social events were removed from the website. 

The situation is now changing and many Governments and Administrations are now moving towards some relaxation of the rules. 
Now that we are moving towards this partial relaxation it is appropriate that Branch and Chapter Captains, with their committees, may plan and where appropriate commence those social activities which they judge can be done within the limits of national and local guidance and with due care to the safety of members.

Keep safe everyone.


Commodore's Welcome

“I am delighted to welcome you to the Moody Owners Association Website. The Association embraces those who own yachts sold by AH Moody & Sons and Moody yachts built by Hanse of Germany.

The aims of the Association are to serve as a custodian of information about Moody boats; to provide a forum for owner experiences concerning the marque; to promote social and sailing opportunities for owners to meet, sail together and socialise and to provide a point of contact for prospective Moody owners. Our magazine Compass and our Website strive to provide all this, so please do explore and enjoy them.  If you own a Moody and are not a member already, please come and join us.”.

MOA Group MMSI no 023200031

MOA Group MMSI number is 023200031

If you have installed a new VHF Radio, it will almost certainly have DSC facilities and you will have an MMSI number. You may wish to store our group MMSI above to call any fellow members in the area. The MOA was one of the first associations to register a group MMSI number.
