East Coast Branch
Welcome to the East Coast Branch Pages
The Branch – The Facts
Our branch covers a very large sailing area from Berwick-Upon-Tweed on the Scottish Border to Dover, and currently we have around 260 members in the Branch, one of the largest in the Association. We are also very active with typically 12 or 13 social and sailing events organised each year.
The Branch started life in the River Orwell in 1991, and this area remains the focal point of much of our activity, with the majority of events being organised in and around the Thames Estuary. We are keen to encourage members further afield to join in and organise their own events where there are sufficient numbers of Moody Owners to make this feasible.
Our events are informal, friendly and we hope welcoming, so, if you have not attended any yet, please give it a go. If it is too far to sail, or the weather is not behaving, come along by road if possible.
We have a small branch committee of six, and some local contacts in the main sailing locations in our area. We are here to help, so if you have any questions please contact us, you can find the details on our Team Page.
Not yet a member, and have a Moody on the East Coast ? – well you are missing out on some fine company, as well as being able to access lots of help and advice on the forums and the Association Magazine ‘Compass’
Our provisional event in early May has had to be cancelled because of the Covid-19 situation. However hopefully after May 17th, HM Government Covid-19 regulations will be relaxed sufficiently to allow our social events programme to continue. Our Programme of Events is now available on this web site.
Members will receive updated information about events by e-mail, as and when it becomes available. We still plan to trial the use of What’s App groups to help with Event planning and Management during the season.
Our Next Events
Our events plan for 2021 is now published on the Events page. Please put the dates in your diary if you would like to attend. Obviously all events are subject to the prevailing Covid-19 situation and Government regulations that prevail at the time.
