Dinghy Cruises are a chance to explore the Solent and test a range of dinghy skills on the water. They are longer sails and can include the chance for a picnic lunch ashore, meaning the need to beach and relaunch or anchor if preferred. Swimming on a dinghy cruise is usually voluntary, and not the result of a capsize. 


Previous trips have been to Keyhaven, Tanners, Yarmouth and Newtown Creek. Some years it is possible to sail to Totland Bay for the inter-club Sandcastle Competition.


The group can decide on the day where to go, depending on the prevailing tides and weather conditions. They have the support of a RIB and a named individual who will stay ashore in case extra help is needed.


It is worth joining the Telegram group to keep up to date before the sail, but sailors and RIB crew will meet at 10am on the lawn or LDB to passage plan and sign the registration sheet. After informing the shore based contact about the plans the group can launch.


This is a relaxed way to sail and enjoy being on the water.

Full details of what the club does for you and what you commit to in return is in the Dinghy Cruising Charter.
