The Island Yacht Club organises Club Cruises so that members can enjoy the extra reassurance of cruising in company. This can give skippers the chance to explore further afield than they would normally on their own. We always have a good time on our cruises, the aim is normally to keep the days sailing to around 6 hours so as to make the passage easier for lightly crewed boats and for families with children.
In recent years, apart from the traditional Commodores cruises and local weekend cruises, we have organised fortnight cruises during the school holidays. One was to the South Coast, we got as far as Brighton, and visited Ramsgate, Dover, Eastbourne, and Rye. (as a result of strong head winds we curtailed our plan to cruise to the IOW, however some members went by train and ferry to see family and watch the Round the IOW Race) Another cruise was to the East Coast and this was supported by 5 boats, 3 of them with young members on board.
