Cruising Programme 2017with event organisers and HW times.

If you are not content with simply racing, or perhaps just prefer to travel in a more relaxed manner afloat, the Royal Southern Cruising Section boasts a fine and varied selection of activities for members and friends to participate in
.


During the course of each month throughout the season, the Cruising Committee has planned such a wide variety of events, that there is something going on just about every week. For example:

Mid-Week Rallies to favourites like the Folly, Lymington, the Beaulieu River, Newtown Creek, Bembridge and Yarmouth. The Solent is a different place during the week; it sometimes feels that we almost have it to ourselves. That goes for the quiet anchorages too!

The Cruiser Races. Not that family racing is entirely ignored. We run the Solent Cruiser Race each spring over the May bank holiday weekend. This is a real fun event for all the family, with three legs, one each day to a different destination in the Solent. The added bonus is that thanks to the clever rules, you may use your engine for part of the race. That way, nobody misses the pontoon or cockpit party! What parties they are too.
The week long 'Cruiser Race' proper takes place later in the summer and typically goes to either Normandy, Brittany or the West Country. A real opportunity for the whole family to meet and make new friends with great socialising at all levels on the lay days and after racing.

Extended Cruises In Company, have included rallies to Dunkirk, Paris, Rotterdam, Stockholm and the Baltic. While we have also been on bareboat charters from the Pacific N/W of the USA, Canada, and Chesapeake, as well as the Bay of Islands and the Hauraki Gulf in New Zealand, or cruising in the Med' such as around Elba organised by the member clubs of the International Council of Yacht Clubs...

Ladies Afloat Days: Another mid-week event on a selected Wednesday each month from May to September, where this time the Ladies take centre stage. These outings are open to any lady member who would like to enjoy a very pleasant day out in company on boats provided by volunteer skippers - usually up to about 6 per boat. No experience required, just a sense of fun! Back in time for tea.

At the smallest extreme, we have an inland dinghy trip up the Hamble for lunch at the 'Horse & Jockey' at Curbridge when the family can indulge "Swallows & Amazons" fantasies returning downstream to the Club in time for tea (or even a "G&T")! 

Weekend Rallies And Races: There are passage races for the club handicap class to Yarmouth and Poole and many members just come along for the socials.

Cruiser Suppers: We kick off the season with our May Cruiser Supper and in the autumn, we round off with another cruiser supper when we reminisce with photos on the big screen, with friends old and new. Come and join us.

Bryan Hughes, Cruising Committee.

 Yarmouth Midweek Rally
Yarmouth Midweek Rally
There was a meet of 16 boats and their crews in Yarmouth for the September midweek rally. The promise of good weather must have been the trigger that made us let go the mooring lines and set off for Yarmouth on a strong spring tide. The forecast was for North Westerly winds but the sea br...

 2015 Cruiser Race Report
2015 Cruiser Race Report
Luckily most of the Cruiser Race fleet got away to Cherbourg before the strong winds came in. Sadly Watermark and Bambella did not make it in time to get the benign wind. The rest of us assembled in Cherbourg by Saturday morning.  
The forecast for Sunday our departure day for Carteret was for force 5 to 6 South west winds gusting to force 7 so the decision during our supper at the Cherbourg Yacht Club was for a delayed start and in fact the forecast was for even stronger wind on Monday.

 Newtown Creek Rally Report
Newtown Creek Rally
Tuesday's forecast was for a blustery day but, undaunted, 5 boats set off for Newtown Creek. There was the typical wind over tide situation leading to a short chop. The sail was made more interesting by the Classic Yachts racing in their regatta, some beautiful 8 and 6 metres, ...
