Cruise in company across the English Channel

'Cartaret'    .

Sometimes it's not where you go, but with whom you go, that makes the difference. But when the company is bound to be good and the destination is alluring, who can resist? A division of Britain's Cruising Association, Northern France and the Channel Islands (NF&CI), is running an eight-day Cruise in Company to the Channel Islands from 14 - 21 July 2012.

Sailing into St Hellier -  .. .  
This will be the maiden voyage for the Division and will include a flotilla of approximately 12 boats, setting off from various points along the south coast of England.

The cruise will meet in Cherbourg on Saturday 14th July in time for the Bastille Day celebrations and fireworks.

On Sunday, the flotilla will pass through the Alderney Race to Carteret, then onto St Helier, finally mooring at St Peter Port on Thursday 19th July.

Social events are planned en route for joining boats, including a BBQ, a Safari Supper in St Helier and an end-of-cruise dinner in St Peter Port.

Cherbourg is the closest part of France to England’s central south coast allowing a relatively short daylight passage.

The trip is open to both members and non-members of the association, so sailors anywhere within reach are welcome.

If you are a non-member and interested in joining the Cruise in Company please contact the organiser Stuart King at channelislands@cruising.org.uk.

What is The Cruising Association?
The Cruising Association (CA) is Britain's leading organisation for cruising sailors. With more than 4000 members across the globe, they provide services, information, help and advice to sailors worldwide.

Founded in 1908 to meet the needs of cruising sailors, the CA has been a home to many of the great names in sailing. It publishes an almanac which covers the whole of the British Isles and Atlantic seaboard of Europe and has local representatives all over the world.

The CA has 17 UK and worldwide divisions, called 'Sections' providing specialised knowledge and events wherever their members cruise.
