Sail-World.com : Cruising Association Launches New ‘Celtic Seas’ Section
Cruising Association Launches New ‘Celtic Seas’ Section


'The famed Cruising Association headquarters'    .

The Cruising Association, Britain’s leading organisation for cruising sailors, will launch a new cruising section in October to cover activity on the western coasts of Britain and the whole of Ireland. The Cruising Association may be Britain-based, but these days it can truly be called global, maintaining close contact with more than 4,300 members worldwide.

Dividing the Association into 'Sections' allows the club to be local as well as global, and it already has 18 separate Sections. The Celtic Seas section will complete the Association’s coverage of the British Isles: there is already a North Sea section and a Channel section which covers the South Coast of England, the Channel Islands and the north coast of France.

The Celtic Seas section includes the West Coast of Scotland, the whole of Ireland, the Isle of Man and the west coasts of England and Wales. Events and cruises-in-company will be arranged and there will be CelticNet, an online forum for members. It is envisaged that in many cases Celtic Seas will work together with existing cruising clubs and associations in western waters to organise joint events. The Cruising Association already has a strong presence in the area with eleven Honorary Local Representatives in Ireland, one in the Isle of Man, twelve in Scotland and three in Wales: more will be recruited.
 
An initial meeting will be held on Saturday, 19 October at CA House, Limehouse, London, to discuss cruising in such a diverse area. In addition the first year’s program will be outlined. Members of existing west coast and Irish associations will be invited.

There will be various speakers on the day giving short presentations and advice on sailing in the different sea areas. A light buffet lunch will be served. Subsequent events will be organised closer to the Celtic Seas cruising grounds. The event is open to members and non-members with an interest in cruising – motor and sail – in the West, who’d like to find out what the Section can offer them, and how they can play a part in shaping it.

For further details about the meeting on 19th October, email reception@cruising.org.uk
