Cruising in Company

Up River Yacht Club members who sail cruisers can choose to go on six club rallies a year. Many include an optional race to add some competitive fun. These are weekend trips with two exceptions; the week long annual cruise in the UK and cruise to the continent.

2017 URYC cruiser programme:

  • April 30   Shakedown cruise to Burnham – cricket match on the Green – optional race back to Hullbridge
  • May 30   Continental cruise France/Belgium returning 4 June
  • July 1     UK Club Cruise returning on 8 July
  • July 29   Osea Island BBQ weekend with (optional) cup race
  • Sept 23  Brightlingsea weekend with (optional) race there and back the next day
  • Oct 21   Bradwell weekend – end of season cruise
I thoroughly enjoyed the 2016 club cruise to Southwold. Our tour of the brewery was the highlight, especially the beer tasting at the end!                                Martin Johnson
