Cruise in Company 2024

 

Many of our students over the past few years have expressed an interest in joining us on a Cruise to Guernsey.

From experience we know how daunting the prospect of planning and executing such a trip can be.

The aim of the Cruise In Company is to give boat owners the experience of a cross channel passage whilst enjoying the security and safety of completing the passage under the guidance of experienced skippers.

After 2 successful Cruise in Company in 2023,  we have been asked to organise more events in 2024.

We are planning a trip to Guernsey and potentially one to Weymouth and beyond.  (subject to weather)

These dates chosen fit well with the tides to get in and out of Guernsey, St Peter Port, at reasonable times – we just can’t guarantee the weather.

If the weather isn’t suitable for the Channel Island then plan B will be to do a Coastal run to Weymouth or beyond.

Slower boats, with a cruising speed of less than 20kts, will be in one group with a Mendez Marine skipper placed on one of those boats and faster Boats will be led by the good ship Fenland Dancer.  If we get enough in the flotilla there will be a couple of additional RYA Yachtmaster skippers in the group who can be dispersed amongst the ‘fleet’.

We anticipate a maximum of 12 boats in the Fleet.

There will be a passage planning meeting a week or so before the cruise to brief the skippers and to give help and advice to plot onto Navigation systems.

Dates for cruises are:

5 – 9 June 2024

22 – 26 August
