Cruising

The club organises a number of cruising opportunities for members and guest boats during the season, these include local meetings on the river, weekend cruises and longer cruises and on occasions flotilla holidays. Plans, updates and progress are supported by a WhatsApp group. The group is in addition used to arrange impromptu sailing in company by members and allows members to offer invitations to crew. To join the group contact the cruiser class captain or email MCC_cruisers@email.com

Despite a delayed start to the season and the restrictions imposed by the Coronavirus pandemic the amended 2020 cruising programme proved to be very enjoyable to all those who took part. Starting with day sails in the local area we were able to complete cruises to Ramsgate, the East Coast and a circumnavigation of the Isle of Sheppey once restrictions on sleeping onboard were relaxed.
