We are also considering an event in Grimsby to involve those members who keep their boats north of Lowestoft on the East Coast. Some boats from Essex /
Norfolk / Suffolk would be most welcome as well. If you’re interested, please contact the Branch Captain.

As always, members from other branches would be welcome to join in any part of this programme.

East Coast Branch members will receive details of each event by e-mail approximately a month before the date. The e-mail will include instructions about registering for berthing and ordering food etc.

The programme is subject to change.

Could you help with Sailing Events on the East Coast ??

East Coast Members – If you are prepared to organise a rally, even if it is only a BBQ at the marina where you berth, please let us know.

Guidance on how to organise and coordinate an event can be found on our Documents Page.
