The Coaster Club was formed in April 1992. The club was established with the aims of compiling a register of all the boats in the class, to inform and exchange technical matters concerning the class, to arrange both social and sailing meetings for members and to encourage a bond between fellow members.
To this end, the club produces three Newsletters each year detailing information such as AGM notifications, boat histories, passage reports, technical hints and tips along with general news of members travels.
The Newsletters not only keep members in touch with one another but also helps to share technical knowledge between members.
In addition, the club keeps details on each of the boats, such as owners' details, hull number, sail number, home port and yacht club membership.
In its initial year, the club managed to achieve a membership of 25 Coasters.
Now in its 12th year, the Coaster Club membership has grown to 30, allowing Coaster owners to fly the Coaster Club burgee.
