About Club Cruising

All members are welcome to join our cruising programme. Over the years, the RCYC Cruising has had meets in locations as far afield as the Golfe du Morbihan, South Brittany and Loch Scavaig, Isle of Skye. We welcome all cruisers to join us. The Club Launch and temporary membership for visiting sailors are available.

We have a useful wall to dry out against to check anodes etc, although scrubbing off is no longer allowed.

Once again, we have the RCYC Cruising Programme with several local meets still to come.

RCYC Cruising is a key element of the social side of the club. There are regular social events throughout the cruising programme. Fitting-Out and Laying-Up Suppers are held each year, together with a selection of other club-based events in the cruising calendar. More about this can be found within our Cruising Calendar.

Recently the Isles of Scilly Meet was held between 2nd – 4th June 2022 to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and the Club’s Sesquicentenary.

The RCYC cruising trophies are:

Holman Cup for the best log by a club member
Vage Flagon for the voyage of most merit by a club member

The Holman Cup has been presented for many superb logs of significant cruises, including to Kenneth Robertson and Jenny Thomas for their log entitled “The Saga of Lady Rebel in the West Indies“

The Vage Flagon, awarded for the most meritorious voyage, has gone to members for round Britain cruises and other voyages to distant shores, including Peter Hoggins’ trip described in his report of “Diamond Days – exploring Newfoundland’s south-west coat”.

Nominations are judged by a panel of experienced cruisers and awarded at the AGM in April.
