To encourage membership, we keep our fees very low (only £67 to Join, covers two adults children and Grand children of the family, and £52 pa. there after); adopt a friendly, unstuffy and informal approach to cruising life, putting all our efforts into organising and running a full and varied programme of cruising, social and training events each year.
Our cruising events are designed so that most boat owning members can participate if they wish. Cruises are mainly to the many destinations around the East Coast and Thames Estuary, not involving long passages and so are ideal for family boaters, although there are usually one or two trips to Holland, Belgium or France each year as well. The emphasis is on the social side of things, a glass or two of wine aboard, yacht club meals and BBQ’s often feature. For the more adventurous we have an annual Cruising Challenge which involves four passages of at least 50 NM, with recognitions and awards on completion of the challenge.
