The Cruising Section was formed so that members of Yarmouth Sailing Club who own cruising boats – sailing or motor boats – who would like to sail to destinations in the Solent or further afield in company with likeminded members could do so.
Destinations are decided at the Planning Meeting held in September and lunches, suppers and moorings are booked by the Cruising Section Leader (currently Arthur Barker – email firstname.lastname@example.org : 01983 741274).
All members of Yarmouth Sailing Club are invited to take part in rallies by boat, road or ferry and can contact Arthur by email or phone to receive all the details. Non-boat-owning members wishing to go on a rally who would like to travel by boat should also contact him and he will endeavour to place them as crew or passengers with boat owners taking part in the rally.
Those taking part in rallies are asked to read the Cruising Section Guidelines. These are basically common sense but do need to be followed. See below to download.
