Membership Renewal Due

This is a reminder that your MBLA membership is now due for renewal as from the AGM.  I hope you enjoyed sailing with us last season.  The skippers have already been busy preparing this year’s sailing program and hopefully it will be equally as good.  I and the committee also look forward to your continued support for the coming season, let’s hope the weather is kind to us and we have good warm spells with fair winds during 2017.

I am sending this as an Email this year to majority of the members so I can reduce the cost of postage to the association.  I hope this is OK with you.  If you want a written letter, please email me with the request ASAP and I will send you a letter, hopefully before the AGM.

Membership renewal will be due on the date of the AGM to be held on Wednesday 15th March ’17 at the Yacht Inn, Penzance, 7:30PM for 8:00PM start.  The Membership Fee is £20.00 per person per year.  Cheques payable to: MBLA.  You can pay by Cheque or cash on the night of the AGM should you decide to attend or by post to me at the above address.  You can also pay by On Line Banking for those of you who manage your finances On Line.  If so here are the MBLA Bank details:  Bank is HSBC; Sort Code: 40-36-13; Account Number: 91415484; Please put your name in the Payee’s Reference Box (Or Similar).  This is required so we can identify your payment.  Also, please back this up with an email or text message to my mobile, details above.

Please note we now have a new Email system to notify our members of forthcoming events, Sailing Programs (& changes) etc.  It is very important that we have your correct email address otherwise you will miss out on some important events or changes going on within MBLA.  If you have changed any of your personal details; email, phone, mobile, address and NOK etc. please let me know so I can update my records.  You may do this by either email or text, my details are above.  

The 2017 season Sailing Program will be available at the AGM should you decide to come and collect it.  If not, it will be sent to current members preferably by email if you have one (that is why it is important to have your correct email address).  If not, it will be posted to you ASAP after the AGM.

Look Forward for Your Continued Support, Happy Sailing During 2017.  Why not visit our new web site:, and you can now also watch where HR is sailing as we have now installed AIS on Happy Return?  You can follow her progress by going to Marine Traffic:  Go to the Search box (upper left hand corner) and put in ships name (Happy Return) and it will tell you where we are etc.  You can also download the App to your mobile or tablet if required but there might be a small cost for this?
