Cruisers and Fishing

The club has a large cruiser fleet of approximately 100 boats of various sizes, both sailing and motor boats. The club has 85 of its own moorings in the creek beside the club. 

The cruiser section arranges a programme of rallies to destinations within the Solent and further afield.  Our most popular destinations are Bembridge and Ryde particularly for impromptu rallies.  At least once a year we venture as far as Newport, usually around the time of the Pop Festival in June which is popular with the younger members.  Twice a year we visit Chichester Marina to start and end the sailing season.  These rallies attract the most members of the Cruiser Section as we can always drive there if the weather is unfavourable.  There are also several cruiser races per season. See "Events" page for more details.

Early morning on Saturday 4th April (Easter Saturday) Mark Reynolds and his team of willing helpers eagerly awaited the arrival of the crane.  Cruiser owners had been working hard for weeks to get their boats ready.  The crane arrived on time and lifts began at about 9.40am.

  A tractor collects a boat from car park and delivers it to the crane on the quay.
