We run a series of events each year - Cruising, Social and Training.  This page lists all upcoming events in date order.

Our monthly club meetings are running again on the first Tuesday of each month at new venue, the Binfield Club, RG42 4HP.

We are planning to run Cruising events much as normal in 2022 but will follow any Covid precaution guidelines as required.  We are keeping our club charter yacht crew sizes smaller for more comfort.  Our cruising programme for 2022 is on this website Cruising Events 2022  

Each Cruising trip has a "Deposit event" in the list below to sign onto initially so we can book charters. This will be followed by a "Balance payment event" published nearer the date of the trip.

    22-01 Spanish Charter from Vigo (Interest registration)

    Peter Hurley is planing a charter from Vigo to explore the Rias in Galicia, NW Spain.  This is a beautiful cruising area with relatively sheltered "sea lochs" on the Atlantic coast. 

    There are flights from Gatwick to the region and estimated charter costs per head are around 800 euros.

    There has been enough interest to book three yachts but not all crew have yet confirmed so you can still register to be on the waitlist at no cost. 

    Once a place is confirmed a deposit would need to be paid as soon as possible with the balance requested nearer the trip date.

    A one-day course for anyone going to sea, providing an understanding of how to use the safety equipment on board your boat.

    A genuine lifesaver

    Cruising is one of the safest leisure sporting activities, and 99.9% of those afloat will never use their liferaft. However, if you are part of the unlucky 0.1% your chances of survival will be greatly increased if you understand how to use the equipment and how to help yourself.

    It is a well-proven fact that, in the event of an emergency at sea, people with training are more likely to survive.

    An important part of the course is a practical session in a swimming pool. Experience first hand the problems of entering an uncooperative liferaft and assisting others while fully kitted out in wet weather gear and a lifejacket.

    Course topics include:

    • liferafts and the equipment they contain
    • survival techniques
    • the design of lifejackets
    • medical aspects of sea survival
    • search and rescue techniques
    • The RYA Basic Sea Survival Course Completion certificate is awarded on satisfactory completion of the course.
    • You will need old clothing like a tracksuit etc (not jeans) to wear in the water, and a towel. You may bring your own waterproofs and footwear, but these must be clean.
    • If you have your own lifejacket then this might be  a good time to test it. Re-arming kits can be purchased in the Andark shop or other chandleries.
    • The course is classroom and pool based requiring a degree physical ability, please contact us with any questions. We have our own swimming pool on site.

    COURSE INCLUSIONS

    • Course materials and manual
    • Certification
    • Tea and Coffee
    • Biscuits
    • Free Parking
    • Course run in the Andark onsite pool and classroom
