Who are we?

Dartmouth 12-13 May

The first rally of the 2023 Season will be in Dartmouth on Friday 12th May and Saturday the 13th May 2023. We will be meeting on the same pontoon as last year, which is the Buoyage pontoon, but we yet have the final details to put in place. The situation on the Dart is that the SW branch needs to put down a deposit to secure the pontoon so need to know the approximate number of people attending as soon as possible. Please, only reply if you are planning to attend at this stage.

Fowey rally 2-3 June

Bret has been very efficient and has already booked and organised a Fowey rally on the 2nd -3rd June 2023. A pontoon party, guided walk of Old Fowey on Saturday and a dinner at the Gallants Sailing club. Again, more details to follow nearer the date.

Events to come in 2023

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 webmaster at
