DYC Cruising in Company 2018
Interested in cruising your yacht or motorboat in company during 2018?
Cruising together is a great way to visit new ports, gain confidence for a Channel crossing or just make some new friends. Whether you are new to this or an old hand there is always something to be gained from going away as a group.
Last year the club reintroduced a Cruising in Company Programme with visits to Torquay and Guernsey. A September trip to Salcombe had to be cancelled due to bad weather but we still manged a pleasant day sail and anchored off Hallsands for lunch. We would like to build on this in 2018.
Those of you who haven't cruised in company before will find us a relaxed and happy bunch with the emphasis on encouraging newcomers as well as having fun. Members are often looking for crew, so if you don't have a boat then there may still be opportunities to join in.
Following our meeting on 27th Februsry we have now put together a draft programme for 2018:
Shakedown Cruise - APRIL 28th – 29th
Late Spring Cruise - MAY 19th – 20th
First Summer Cruise - JUNE 15th – 17th (Beware the WO National Cruise 7th to 21st JUNE)
Plymouth Rivers Cruise
Day 1 Yealm
Day 2 Cawsands or Jennycliffe to anchor
Day 3 River Lynher – Dandy Hole
Main Summer Cruise - JULY 7th - ??
Late Summer Cruise - SEPT 7th – 10th
Club Day Sails - MONTHLY
Local Lunchtime Anchorages 2nd Wednesday every month
&/or Sat/Sun by agreement
- This draft programme is offered to members of the DYC who may wish to cruise in the company of other members during the coming season.
- Destinations may need to be amended at last minute due to weather considerations
- Subject to interest, dates may be amended with the agreement of those boats taking part
- Additional dates/venues may be proposed subject to interest
I look forward to some great times afloat.
