Cruising Program


Weekend cruises provide an opportunity to visit a number of other Clubs and make friends around the lake. This is one area of boating which attracts power as well as sail boats. ABYC has a reputation for looking after its visitors, and as such, ABYC members are always welcome at other Clubs.

Cruises are organized each season. Details about the cruise locations, organizers, dates of skippers’ meetings etc. can be found on the Notice Board in the Communications Room. Sign up early for organized cruises because there is a maximum number of boats which can be accommodated on each cruise.
