MBSA The MORECAMBE BAY SAILING ASSOCIATION is a joining together of local sailing clubs in order to co-ordinate the clubs if concerted action is required and also co-ordinate sailing events to try to make them bigger, more successful and enjoyable for all.
Present members are Morecambe Sailing Club, Glasson SC, Barrow SC, Roa Island BC, Blackpool & Fleetwood YC, Fleetwood Harbour YC, Ribble CC, River Wyre YC, Wardleys Marine YC & Coniston SC with this year, 2017, a request from Royal Windermere YC to rejoin the association and an offer to hold the dinghy regatta in 2018.
Normally we meet just once a year to discuss matters, events and formulate a programme with a clear plan to support each clubs open regattas. Each year one of the clubs volunteers to host and organise the MBSA Cruiser Regatta and the MBSA Dinghy Regatta Weekends, the Association supports these events with special trophies and sponsorship.
Local Clubs are always welcome to join – contact Mike Furness for further details firstname.lastname@example.org
