Please Help Run the Association

It is lots of fun running the Association.  We need volunteers to fill roles and support the General Committee.

Would you like to organise our presence at Boat Shows?  How about supporting the Membership Registrar?

If you would like to find out more, please email the Commodore

commodore@moodyowners.org

If you have a specialist skill, for example public relations, why not offer us a little of your expertise?

It is lots of fun and you make friends.

Commodore's Message
I am delighted, to be your Commodore for the next two years and hope that I will get the opportunity to meet as many of you as I can during this time.

For 2022, our aim will be to ensure that branches can return to full activity and enable members to enjoy the company of others at musters and events both on and off the water.

The signs at the moment are looking very positive in terms of the 2022 sailing season, and I am sure that you are, as I am, looking forward to getting on the water again and enjoying some great sailing wherever your yacht is based.

Despite the obvious challenges of the past two years, the General committee has been very active in ensuring that our Association continues to be fit for purpose, and to provide the services which you expect as members.

We will be continuing the work of future proofing the Association over the next two years.

This will include improvements to the new membership system, keeping a firm grip on our finances in the face of increasing costs for printing, and encouraging members to come forward to join the Executive Committee and assist in supporting roles.

Please get in touch with me if you would like to become more involved with the running of your association.

Stay safe both on and off the water.

Roger Coppock (Commodore)

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 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.
