Latest News

Rally reports from last season are here. At our AGM on 3/4 February, a provisional list of rallies for the year was agreed. This can be seen below and will be updated as the rallies develop. A draft minutes of the meeting is in preparation and will be posted when available.

This year’s programme will be managed our team consisting of captain, Tony Wildig, secretary Peter Roberts and treasurer Keith Bunker (who has remained in post for a further year).

One of the ideas coming for the AGM, was a desire to share each other’s cruising plans to help planning of the “cruise in company” see below, or to facilitate members to recognise such an opportunity with others. If you would like to have published in brief form, any plans you would like to share, please send them to John.Oldham@moodyowners.org

Events to come in 2018

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
