The itinerary assumes a speed over the ground of 5 knots being sailing speed plus at least 1 knot of tide. There are start times for boats under 30ft and those over, so ‘the fleet’ will be in sight of one another for most of the longer sails.

If winds prove adverse on the Summer Cruise, or too strong for comfortable sailing, there is significant flexibility built into the itinerary to avoid long ‘slogs’ to windward. As it’s during school holidays the itinerary is family friendly.

That’s why bits can be missed out entirely for those who decide not to sail on the first weekend for example, or for anyone who needs to get back early. These are asterisked as contingency days within the itinerary.
