The Cruising Section is an active and well supported part of the Club, and above all it is friendly and accessible to all.  We cruise in company to local ports during the sailing season and always welcome new members to our section.

During the months of September through to April the section organises monthly walks all over the Island, ranging from short local strolls to bracing hillside treks and always followed by lunch at a nearby pub or sailing club.

Although the BHYC Motor Boat and Cruising Sections have now been incorporated, a small number of us still meet in the Club every Wednesday at around 2030 to put the worlds to rights and have a drink. Anybody is welcome to join us whether their motive power is sail or motor. Just turn up for a hearty chat.

Details of each event will be circulated by e-mail, the BHYC Newsletter and the Notice board.   The programme will also be published on this website.
The cruising dates may be subject to change due to weather and chosen destination.
Please let me know if there are changes to your email address.
