On Water Cruising

The cruising section of the Club is all about laid-back recreational boating with activities that appeal to those who just want to get out on the water with friends and family.

We meet at 1930hrs in the Heritage room on the second Thursday of each month to talk about a range of technical, travel and training options available. We have spent evenings cruising the French canals, learning about basic & advanced radio equipment and techniques and also enjoyed a very informative session with the Fremantle Sea Rescue.

A great way to meet new members are the Progressive Dinners (in the pens). These are always fun – whether it be warm summer sunsets in the cockpit or cold winter nights in the cabin, the food is always great, the wine copious and the laughter non-stop.

With  favourable sailing conditions we cruise to Fremantle for fish & chips or may even visit the Fremantle Maritime Museum, make our way to Matilda and Freshwater Bay’s for lunch or sit back and enjoy sensational sundowners with cocktails or balmy picnics on the grass…

Some of our major fleet events are the Jazz & Wooden Boat Festival in Claisebrook Cove, Cruising in Company to Garden Island, Mandurah, Quindalup or Two Rocks. Up river cruises for picnics or to the vineyards and the Classic Launch Spectator fleet for SoPYC’s Invitation Wooden Boat Race.

There is always something happening in the Cruising Section (on and off the water) so come and see what we are up to!
