WELCOME TO THE CRUISING PAGE!
We encourage members to provide any recommendations on cruising destinations. Perhaps there is a certain spot that you would like to explore or maybe you are just interested in getting away for a weekend with other Club members. Let us know and we would be more than happy to assist and contribute to a fun and enjoyable Cruising Season.
Club Cruises in 2022: The Cruise Committee has been thinking about the possibilities for some organized Club cruises as we “normalize” this summer, if public health guidelines allow. We are still looking for someone to volunteer to organize some small boat day cruises. Contact Fleet Captain Cruising John Lugsdin if interested: firstname.lastname@example.org
Considering Leading a Cruise? Here are some things to think about: Leading a Cruise.
Reciprocal Moorage for Our Members: If you are wondering about our reciprocal moorage agreements with a variety of other clubs on the coast, check out our Yacht Destinations page here. And at the beginning of 2022, as is the case with our own reciprocal status, reciprocal status of all participating Clubs remain uncertain so you must check for “open status” before you go.
Cruising in Our Local Area: the former Fleet Captain Cruising Arne and Club member Jeremy Milsom of the SS Inn have put together a list of information about marinas and anchorages in the local SSI geographical area: local cruising destinations. (Note that reciprocals are not included in this list. Refer to the above for those.)
Sailing Around Vancouver Island: If you are interested in cruising around Vancouver Island, you can get some advice from Past Commodore Dick Pattinson (who circumnavigated many times over the years in his 26 foot Grampian Gwaihir), in his now-historical notes from 1981 and 1983: Dick Pattinson-1981-1983
