About NW & IoM Branch


The North Wales, North West and Isle of Man Branch

Our branch covers members in a large geographical area, who sail in many waters within and without the branch boundaries. Our sailing representatives on the committee page are testament to this.

our aim is to give focus and networking opportunity for members and encourage group activity on the water, where ever that may be able to happen.

We hold and annual cocktail party and a fitting out supper. We aspire to hold musters afloat and will arrange winter walks if members desire such.

Members are cordially invited by the President of the HMS Eaglet Officers Association, known as the "Sea Urchins" to their lunches. Lunches are held in the wardroom of HMS Eaglet on Sefton Street, East Brunswick Dock, approximately 1 mile south of the Liver Buildings, at Royal naval headquarters, North of England. Lunches are held on the 2nd Tuesday of each monthj at 1230 for 1300. Contact should be made in the first instance to the President, Tom Cunningham on 01606 883697 or the Honsec Tony Muncer on 0151 334 8393. You may be assured of a most warm welcome.

North Wales, North West and Isle of Man Branch - different to the norm

In the north, for many people, sailing follows the principle of the sailing season - people lifting out for the winter.

Many RNSA members are intimately involved with their own local clubs as there has been no infrastructure such as exists in a number of southern branches being operated much like a club.

To try and maximise our activity, everything we do is joint with the RNVRYC. Many members are jointly members of both.
