General information

RYA East Club Development Forums 

I am delighted to be able to let you know about forthcoming opportunities that you might find useful for your club.

RYA East are  hosting a range of online Club Development Forums that we hope will assist you in your drive to support your membership during this difficult time.

The first forum in our series is ‘How Can Your Club Engage Members During Lockdown?’. This will take place at 15:00 on Wednesday the 6th May and will last approximately 1 hour.

We know that many of your clubs are doing an excellent job of member engagement and we know that some clubs have asked for additional support in this area. We also know that clubs are concerned about offering value to their members and the impact of the current closures on future participation and renewals. During this interactive club development forum we will explore examples of how clubs are engaging with members during these difficult times and facilitate the sharing of ideas between attendees.

To book and find out more please click HERE You will also be able to view and book future forums at this link.

Hopefully you are all using the #SailFromHome resources, you can find out what’s going on here:

Please remember that all of the latest information for clubs can be found in the Covid-19 information hub on the RYA website HERE

Any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Robbie Bell, East Region RDO



Notices to Mariners (NtM) from the Crouch Harbour Authority


COVID 19 Restrictions

Recreational and Leisure Activities


We are issuing this notice in line with current Government Coronavirus (COVID 19) restrictions issued on Monday 23 March 2020.

To reduce social contact travel and potential strain on emergency services, we strongly recommend that all recreational and leisure activities on the tidal rivers Crouch and Roach are avoided until the current Government restrictions are relaxed.

Our priority is to keep the harbour open and functioning as long as possible. From 9 March the Crouch Harbour Authority implemented contingency planning measures to separate key workers who maintain our harbour patrols, pilot services and office staff. As a result of our resilience measures we have a reduced capability in responding to leisure incidents and enquiries. Although the harbour office is closed to the public it remains open for business by email and telephone. We regret that there may be delays when responding to routine enquiries.

We ask for your cooperation and understanding during the National Emergency.
