Cruising in Company 2018

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
Brixham/Torquay

Late Spring Cruise -  MAY 19th – 20th
Salcombe

First Summer Cruise -  JUNE 15th – 17th (Beware the WO National Cruise 7th to 21st JUNE)

Day 3 River Lynher – Dandy Hole

Main Summer Cruise -  JULY 7th - ??

Late Summer Cruise - SEPT 7th – 10th

 Please Note

  • 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.
