Latest News

Rally reports from last season are here.

A successful AGM weekend in Worcester was held on the weekend of Storm Dennis, which thankfully did not disrupt activities. A report of the weekend will be forthcoming. A new team of officers was elected, with Neil Ewins as captain, John Oldham as treasurer and Rob Barnfield who stepped up at the last moment as there were no other volunteers for secretary. Mary Allen remains as vice captain.

Only 10-15% of the membership throughout the MOA attend rallies and events. This is disappointing considering all the work that goes into organising them.  The boat-less rallies have been one success in reaching out in recent years, but we are always open to suggestions on ways to improve the branch and its activities. Please so do not hesitate to contact us if you feel you could assist in any way possible.

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

* Transfers rather than embroidery will be used on crew bags to preserve waterproof nature of bags
