Welcome to The Hallberg-Rassy Owners Association

The HROA's aim is to provide sailing, social and other activities, and to promote an exchange of information, experience and views. The Association was formed over 25 years ago, and has grown steadily ever since. We now have about 350 Members, including many Friends - past owners who like to keep in touch and join in with many of our events.

Although the majority of Members keep their boats in the UK and Ireland, we have a strong representation in the rest of Europe and further afield. You can read more about the Association in the Message from the Commodore and on the Benefits of Membership page of this site.

Please also make full use of our Facebook page HROA Cruising. This is designed to allow members to arrange impromptu “meet ups” during the season. Just sign up to Facebook and open an account, this will then allow you to search for HROA Cruising. For security, this is a closed group and the contents are not viewable by the general public, so you will need to sign up as a Facebook “friend” for this. It’s just a click of a mouse. We will then check if you are a member and grant “friend” access. On here you will be able to post details of where you are cruising and if you wish to meet up with others, you can also reply to other members proposed meets. Please see attached document for notes on the HROA Cruising Facebook page

Notes on Facebook  HROA Cruising page

It is with great sadness that we report that David Hide, our President until the last AGM, died on Sunday 26 January. After a successful operation on the Thursday, he went home and collapsed on Saturday. After being rushed into hospital he had been found to have a massive brain haemorrhage and died on Sunday. David was highly regarded in the Association and we will, in due course, be writing a suitable obituary for publication in the magazine.
