The Cruising Section is an active and well supported part of the Royal Western Yacht Club. Above all it is friendly and accessible.

We cruise in company to local ports during the Spring and Autumn and enable our members to meet up on an informal basis in foreign ports during their summer sailing. Cruisers have also chartered together in the Mediterranean.

Apart from water based activities we organise educational seminars on topics of interest and importance to yachtsmen and hold two Cruising dinners during the year. These are always well attended by sailors and non sailors alike. At the Spring dinner we present the Drake Trophy for the best cruising log submitted during the previous year.
