AGM 2020

The 2020 MLMA AGM was held remotely on Wednesday 2nd December using Zoom.

Three ordinary members and 5 board members joined the meeting. 28 response forms (with proxy votes) were also received making the meeting quorate for voting purposes.

We would like to thank those members who were able to attend on the day and those who returned proxy forms for their contribution to keeping the MLMA running smoothly in these difficult times.

We would also like to thank Nicky Wilson who provided much needed Zoom support both before and during the meeting.

Any documents relating to the AGM, will be linked from the AGM 2020 page.

Dinghy theft

A green Plastimo dinghy was stolen from the Dexter’s Spit dinghy area this weekend. The dinghy was chained to the galvanised post, so when the thieves stole it on Sunday night they ripped the towing eye from the dinghy breaking the plastic. Please let us know if you see the dinghy and watch out for any suspicious activity.

Using Zoom

The MLMA will be using Zoom to allow meetings to be held remotely. This guide explains how you can join and participate in a Zoom meeting.

To join a Zoom meeting you will need a computer, tablet or smart phone with a working internet connection. The Zoom client software will also need to be installed on the device you plan to use. You can download the Zoom software at

You will also need a microphone in order to speak at the meeting and, optionally, a camera.

To join a meeting follow the link sent to you by the MLMA. You should normally just be able to click on it. Otherwise copy and paste it into your web browser’s address bar. You do not need to create your own Zoom account, you can join the meeting as a guest by following the link.

When you follow the link, your browser will normally ask if it should open it in an application. Make sure  “Zoom” is selected and click on Open Application. The Zoom client should then start.

When you join the meeting your microphone will normally be muted. It is good etiquette to mute your microphone when you are not speaking as it reduces noise for other participants. Don’t forget to unmute when you do wish to speak.

If you need further help with Zoom, many questions are answered on their support page –
