Following on from the one day events and focusing on our skippers refreshing their general boat handling skills, this will be a full weekend of berthing, sail hoisting, reefing and reminding!
The emphasis is on seamanship, practical navigation, close quarters manoeuvres under engine with at least one overnight stay away from Universal and a chance to regain your confidence, blow off the dust and rust!
In addition to this event, there could be other ‘short notice’ Club Events offered during the year which will be advised to members as and when they are arranged. If you would like a bespoke event organised for you or a group, let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate this, including providing a skipper.
We are very keen to encourage new Skippers and existing Skippers to upgrade their tickets, so please do let us know if this is of interest to you. We can then organise preparation or testing events during the year.
Events will start on the Friday evening usually at 6pm, although the host skipper will be in touch with all crew a week or two prior to the event with detailed joining instructions. The cost of each event is just £170 per person (£250 for the Five-Day Cruise and £450 for the Nine-Day Cruise) and this includes the cost of fuel.
Eagle has been reserved for all of these dates and as these Club activities are very popular, don’t leave it to the last minute – bookings are now being taken.
