About us

Following legal advice, EAST’s trustees have formed a new Charitable Incorporate Organisation also called East Anglian Sailing Trust, with the same trustees and the same objects. All that really changes is our registered number at the Charity Commission, which was 1060465, and is now 1159243.

“New EAST” has its own separate legal entity, which will simplify the holding of various assets, in particular the lease of our Waterside Community Centre, and we believe it will also make it easier to recruit new trustees as necessary. The constitution is slightly different from the old one, but is based almost entirely on the model constitution recommended by the Charity Commission. A copy is available below.
