Cruisers

cruiser catgory

The 2017 cruising programme is jointly organised and promoted by the Lymington Town Sailing and Keyhaven Yacht Clubs. Whether large yacht or small, cruising or racing, long or short distance, there should be something of interest for skippers and crew. All members of both clubs are welcome to join in for cruising in company.

KYC members also enjoy an impromptu approach to cruising which is about “its Friday night, the forecast is good, lets go to……. And see if anyone wants to join us.”

Best way to find out what is happening is to ensure the Club Secretary knows you like to cruise and has an up to date email address for you. Send me your boat name and type and I can ensure you are in the cruising group.
