An open invite to join a flexible Cruise in Company over approximately two weeks around the West Country rivers.
The third year of this informal club event. There will be a core 'official' itinerary, with loosely planned dates and destinations, but it is also intended that others may join for parts of the trip, according to their availability, or as part of their own holiday cruising plans.
Registering for this event is an expression of interest to join all or part of a westward cruise. We will set up a Whatsapp group to coordinate plans between crews.
We are intending to make our way to the furthest Western point at the start of the trip, and then to make stops on a leisurely journey back East.
Provisional Core Itinerary
22nd July Yarmouth IoW
23rd July Dartmouth (unless weather is good for a stop at Lulworth Cove)
24th July Newlyn / St Michael's Bay
Return Journey Destinations:
Falmouth / Helford Estuaries
Brixham / Torquay
Portland / Lulworth
The Committee intends that club events will go ahead wherever possible in 2022, and the planned events are not intended to be cancelled unless they are clearly prohibited by government restrictions.
All events will be run as 'Cruise in Company'. All participants must comply with and be individually responsible for relevant guidance or regulations such as socially distancing, maximum group sizes and household mixing during any interaction of crew groups.
It will be the responsibility of individual skippers to comply with relevant guidance or regulations in respect of crewing arrangements and the safety of their crews. This includes, but is not limited to - hygiene precautions, social distancing, group sizes and mixing of households on board.
Due to the uncertainty over Covid risks and restrictions at the time of the event, activities and catered dining arrangements (Plan A) are subject to change or cancellation. Crews will need to be prepared for a Plan B of switching to an open air BBQ in individual crew groups or catering on board for example.
All attendees must be registered for the event for track and trace purposes.
