Cruising

Dinghy cruising at Brightlingsea is all about the adventure of exploring coastal waters, rivers and creeks at a pace that suits. Mersea Island, Wivenhoe and the Blackwater to Maldon are just a few of the places in easy reach of the sailing club.

What’s on offer?

Are you new to sailing or just want to spend time on the water exploring the local area with other like-minded sailors who don’t mind where the wind and tide take them?  If so please contact Cruising Coordinator Andy Taylor on Email andrewjtaylor@gonesailing.myzen.co.uk to find out more about forthcoming cruising activities and events.

Our members collect in groups and explore the interesting creeks and beaches nearby to the club.  It’s a great way to explore the local area and improve your sailing skills.

Some members come along to our Wednesday night Supported Development session to take the opportunity to do a little local cruising whilst a rescue boat is on the water.

Please click here for a useful cruising equipment checklist to help you ensure you are well prepared for your cruising adventures.
