Sailing

New for 2019: In order to encourage the participation of under 18’s we are introducing an enhanced handicapping system to the racing events so that inexperienced helmers will have an improved chance of winning.

Fast cruising for fun
Fast Cruising is Fun!

The North Wales Cruising Club has a very active on-the-water programme for sailing and motor boats throughout the Spring, Summer and Autumn months.

We run events aimed at all types of sailors, including racing, family barbecues, day trips, weekend trips and bigger events like our week-long Spring Cruise and extended Summer Cruises, where we aim to travel further afield – destinations have included the Isle of Man, Northern and Southern Ireland, the North West Coast of England, the Isles of Scilly, Brittany and Scotland.

In addition, we run very popular special events each year such as the Trafalgar Day Rally and more recently the international Bart’s Bash event, for which we have been the biggest fundraising club in Wales every year so far.

From 2016, we have partnered with Conwy Yacht Club so that there is an open invitation for NWCC members to take part in their races as well as their members taking part in ours.  Some of their key events are included in our programme, but for their full sailing programme please see the CYC website.

Unless otherwise notified, final briefings for events will be held in the Clubhouse at 2100 on the Friday evening before the event.

We usually publish our programme over the Winter months, so please check back regularly and also note that the programme will be subject to minor changes throughout the season as circumstances dictate.

Upcoming on-the-water events include:
