East Coast Branch

Join in and enjoy yourself at our events 

 Here is the 2020 programme for the East Coast 

Join in the sailing, rendezvous in port or just come along by road for the eating and drinking!

Please Note: All Events are cancelled until further notice

In light of the government’s guidance, and that of the MOA General Committee, the East coast will sadly be cancelling its programme of events until further notice. Considering how widespread the Covid-19 corona virus is, and the age profile of members, it is the sensible course to follow. We will of course re-instate the programme of events as soon as the situation allows. 17th March 2020 Alan Giles – Branch Captain
