Shrimper Owners Association
The Organisation

Shrimper line drawing.jpgThe Organisation

Reflecting the style and spirit of the Cornish Shrimper, the SOA is a very relaxed and low-key organisation. It is decentralised and relies heavily on the enthusiasm of members at local level. It thrives because the elegance, practicality,seaworthiness and fun aspects of the Shrimper tend to attract owners who have a good deal in common.

The SOA is a sum of its parts, namely, the regional groups. Some of the groups have large numbers ie, Falmouth, Poole, Solent &Chichester whereas other areas without the 'attraction' of safe harbours etc. are less populated but with equally enthusiastic members.

Each group has a Regional Hon. Sec. who plans and implements the seasonal programs. He/She is the primary point of contact for those SOA members wishing to join up in any particular area. Joining one of the regular local rallies or perhaps the principal National Rally is the perfect introduction to sailing within the SOA
