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.

In order to find out what our many new members would like to see, everyone interested is invited to a meeting on Tuesday 27th February at 7pm during which you can find out more and make suggestions of where and when you would like to go.

If there is sufficient interest, food can be made available and the intention is to get together and swap stories of travels past and formulate this season's plans.

If you are able to attend the meeting or are interested but cannot attend, please let me know via email or by signing up on the noticeboard.

Also, please let me know if you’re interested in a buffet and we’ll see what can be made available on the night.

I look forward to some great times afloat.
