Cruising

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

Weekend Anchorages

This new email group is intended for CBYC weekend cruisers to share information on choice destinations east and west of Collins Bay. Posts based on the recommendations of some of CBYC’s most seasoned cruisers are made every Friday morning.

All CBYC members are welcome to join the weekend anchorages email group. To do so, email cruise@collinsbayyachtclub.ca and type in the subject line: Weekend anchorages – sign me up!
