Latest News

All rallies have been cancelled because of the disease pandemic, and the table of events removed. Remaining events will be reinstated if and when the situation allows. Please check back here for up to date news.

Rally reports from last season are here.

Captain Neil Ewins provides his personal catch up (11/08/20).

It has been a very strange year but the lock down is now easing and many of you are self-isolating on a boat. On my sailing around the South west coast line I have seen many Moody Owners Brugee’s flying on yachts. However, the COVID (19) is still present. We feel that it is still not a safe option to arrange any rally’s this year. Even our usual Plymouth Fireworks Rally has been cancelled by Plymouth Council due to the epidemic. Another club I am a member of tried a socially distancing rally in Fishcombe Cove near Brixham. It did not work well we were all swinging around in different directions on our anchors whilst trying to shout across to each other.

February next year if the COVID allows we will be arranging our AGM. We are looking at a weekend event of course and are currently looking at Woodbury golf course and hotel. This has great accommodation, pool and sauna as well as great dining. We will keep you updated as to how this is going. Meanwhile the SW committee would like to wish you all a safe and happy time on the water and look forward to when we can all safely meet up again.

Events to come in 2020

Table removed because of disease pandemic. Please see above

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. We had a direct link to an order page, however, because of low volume this has lapsed, hence to order you should call Kitz UK.

* 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.

If you have any queries, please contact the SW treasurer at sw.webmaster@moodyowners.org
