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.

June Mid Week Rally 2015
The venue for our 3rd mid week of the season was Bucklers Hard. Sadly the forecast of force 5 to 6 winds put a lot of members off making the trip down the Solent in particular the motor boats. But 3 sailing yachts made it. The strong wind was in the north east so the sail do...

 Sailability Day Report & Images
Sailability Day Report & Images
On the 6 June the Southern hosted a Sailability day for Deaf Sailing UK.
The 17 guests arrived for coffee at the club, where they were welcomed by the Commodore. They were then allocated to the various members' boats including Dino Volante, Samiotissa, Wetwheels, Up to Speed and a RIB. They then set off for a day sailing in the Solent. The scene in Cowes was enhanced by the presence of some beautiful classic yachts and royal yachts that had assembled for the Royal Yacht Squadron bicentenary review.

 Club Pursuit Race Report
Club Pursuit Race Report
Whilst the summer sun did kindly appear for the Club Pursuit Race the wind was forecast to be absent which certainly set a challenge for the Race Office Stuart Childerley.
With competitors from all sections of the Club sailing fraternity the boats ranged from a lovely Ed Burnett gaff cutter, through many of the cruising fraternity, and across to various racers in the Club.
It is a tribute to the handicapping that the first three boats of varying sizes crossed with about twenty five seconds between them but the Commodore just squeezed in Hot Rats between Xtract and Din Volante by seven seconds on Dino Volante with Xtract some twenty seconds behind in third.
