The Solent’s newest boating organisation has recently been formed at East Cowes Marina by berth holders and marina management. Medina Yacht Club welcomes all like-minded boaters, wherever you moor your boat. The Club will promote recreational boating of all types by :
* providing social & networking opportunities to build friendships within the marina & club
* broadening the knowledge and experience of members
* providing peer to peer support to build boating confidence
All types of boat and boating interest are very welcome, and we’re delighted to welcome members who haven’t even got round to buying a boat yet! Our activities will include socials, cruises, rallies and training, and we’re always happy to welcome ideas and suggestions for new events.
Because we don’t have an expensive clubhouse or other overheads, our membership is great value at £40 for up to two people. Having two people on a single membership fee encourages joint owners and couples to both become involved in the Club without extra expense. The Lifeboat pub in East Cowes Marina is our home-away-from-home, and we meet there on the first Friday of each month for an informal get together – come and join us.
Our Facebook page is regularly updated with activities, photos and news, or talk to anyone flying the mermaid burgee on their boat.
Your membership fees enable us to take out insurance and RYA membership so we can run events safely, they allow us to pay in advance for venues, catering and services for events, and they allow us to subsidise some activities for members.
If you want to join, pop into the office and talk to the marina staff.
