Save the Date for the 2018 CBYA AGM!


The 2018 CBYA AGM is scheduled to take place on Monday 5th March 2018 at the Real Club Náutico de Calpe. Please make a note in your calendar now.

James Morris has stepped down due to medical reasons, so we have a vacancy for a Membership Secretary. Rachel Garnham has kindly offered to act as a temporary Membership Secretary in the interim period up to the AGM.

We are also looking for other CBYA members who are willing to join the Committee to help us run our rapidly growing association. Although it is preferable, it is not necessary for Committee members to be permanent residents in Spain.

If you are interested in putting back some of what you get out of your CBYA membership, please contact Ann Masson, the CBYA Secretary, on
