Welcome to the Keyhaven Yacht Club Cruising Section
(in association with Lymington Town Sailing Club)
The aim of this Cruising group is to visit new and familiar ports, places and areas and to explore and share experiences in the company of supportive others.
The cruising programme is designed to include all boats, power or sail, big or small, in areas that stretch from local ports like Yarmouth to the waters of continental Europe on the Summer cruise.
This year we have a wide range of rallies organised by members for members to enable new and varied experience cruisers to venture near and further afield to suit.
As a member of the Club, you may also be able to join a boat as crew, if the boat owner is short of crew and there is a place or port you want to visit.
By joining the group, you will not only be kept informed of the rallies, dates and organising club members, but also social events at the Club too.
We are always open to new ideas for interesting places to visit or new journeys to experience and are keen to welcome all to join in the fun.
A bonus for joining the rallies is that the organisers frequently arrange guaranteed moorings reservations at the locations, have local knowledge, find restaurants for evening / social events and can help with passage planning (where appropriate). However, participants can choose to participate as little or as much as they please, it is entirely up to you how much you join in.
This enables individual cruising boat owners (power or Sail) to visit places that they may not have considered or may be very familiar with, in the company of other like-minded people, taking some of the stress out of trying to organise it individually.
