Fiducia is proud to announce that we will be sponsoring the West Mersea Yacht Club’s sailing events again this year, for what we all hope will be a fun-filled and uplifting season.

Fiducia has chosen to sponsor a Racing Mark, alongside other fantastic local businesses, and we encourage our clients to visit their websites and avail themselves of their services too.

As a small, independent Chartered firm we feel very passionately about supporting community groups and local clubs and we know that our clients will appreciate the shared values with the historic West Mersea Yacht Club.

Founded in 1899, the West Mersea Yacht Club (WMYC) has become one of the prominent racing venues on the East Coast of England. Located some 25 minutes from Colchester on Mersea Island, it provides a pleasant sheltered anchorage with immediate access to the ideal racing area and extensive sailing waters of the River Blackwater, Thames Estuary and North Sea for all types of boat.

The Club is passionate about nurturing the local talent and is proud to be the home of Saskia Clark and Hannah Mills, Olympic Gold and Silver medalists respectively at the Rio games.

Besides its own Club Yacht Racing Programme, Mersea has been the venue for major Youth, National and International events for dinghy, sportsboats and keel boats. They also a major supporter of the EAORA and RORC, starting off-shore races to various Thames Estuary and North Sea European ports. The extensive local waters in the Blackwater estuary, enable the Race teams to set all types of courses, from Windward/Leewards through Round the Cans or to up to three Trapezoids side by side. The Estuary and the prevailing wind direction align and during the summer months on fine days a constant sea breeze, enables champagne sailing. Launching is at all states of the tide for dinghies.

The local racing includes joint racing with the Dabchicks Sailing Club and well established cup races that are open to visitors as well as Mersea Cadet Week and the very popular Mersea Week Regatta (during which Fiducia is also sponsoring the Town Regatta year) for offshore yachts, keelboats, dinghies and classics including traditional working boats and “winklebrigs”. The week includes the unique “Round Mersea Island Race” where dinghies are manoeuvred over the Strood causeway linking the island to mainland England.

Members and Visitors always enjoy a warm welcome in the comfortable Clubhouse or, weather permitting, join their friends for a drink on the on the lawn. A full range of bar and catering facilities is available providing hot meals 363 days of the year at lunch time and 4 evenings. Event specific socials and dining can be arranged in the elegant Long Room, with the upstairs Moliette Bar and Balcony with views across the moorings and creeks.

The Mersea waterside itself and the village provide a full range of services and facilities for the racing and cruising yachtsman.

As a firm, we very much look forward to supporting this season’s events and wish sailors and spectators fair weather for a buoyant summer. Navigating financial planning can be just as challenging as crossing stormy seas so we welcome the opportunity to chat to any club members or their family on a free, confidential basis.

Happy Sailing!
