Cruising Programme for 2022

Welcome to the Cruising Section of RDYC, comprising an eclectic but sociable mix of both boats and members.

Most members enjoy regular cruising along the stunning Devon and Cornwall coast, with occasional hops across the channel. Others like to spend longer periods in the Channel Islands and Northern France, or go further to Southern Brittany, Ireland, the West Coast of Scotland, or the Baltic. We also have members with boats in the Mediterranean, or who join an ARC rally and enjoy winter in the Caribbean.

Whether we sail as families, friends, couples or single-handed, the opportunity to socialise in the clubhouse, in our stunning position on the River Dart, is always a joy; to share tales, tips, and enjoy cheery banter in convivial company. A busy social program throughout the year is always a priority, to create a friendly hub of activity when off the water. Friday night suppers occur throughout the year (on days that do not clash with other organised events in the clubhouse).

Following over 2 years of covid restrictions, we plan to broaden our horizons again this year and have something organised to cater for most cruising members aspirations, including:

9th April - Fitting Out Supper (Sailing & Motor Members)

22nd-24th April - Cruise to Plymouth

1st May - Salcombe Crab Festival

19th-24th May - Cruise to Salcombe and Helford (plus Isles of Scilly option)

4th-5th June - English Riviera Air Show, Torbay

3rd-8th July - Merlin Rocket week, Salcombe

8th-10th July - Tunes on the Sands, Blackpool Sands

21st-26th July - Cruise to Guernsey

30th-31stJuly - Sail Grand Prix, Plymouth

17th-18th August - British Fireworks Championships, Plymouth

19th-23rd August - Cruise to Roscoff

16th-18th September - Salcombe + Beach BBQ

…….. together with some spontaneous cruises and mid-week excursions, to suit tides and weather.

If you would like to receive timely postings to cruising members, with the odd bit of cruising chat, do join our WhatsApp Cruising Group.
