Cruising

CBYC cruises are planned every summer to allow members opportunities to discover new anchorages, learn from other members, and hone their sailing skills.

Impromptu Cruises

This concept of cruise organized with short notice emerged last year and was popular among those who have a flexible schedule. It provides more opportunities for cruisers, while requiring minimal organisation. A balance of both planned and impromptu cruises will provide ample opportunities to CBYC members.

The issue encountered last year was to communicate these cruises to the membership at large, in a timely fashion. We are working on a solution and this website will be updated as soon as it is identified.

Organized Cruises

Traditionally, a handful of extended or long-weekend events are organized during the sailing season. Themes and informal activities make these cruises a lot of fun, including daily happy hours, potluck meals and great stories. The line-up for the 2019 cruising season appears below.
