This is my first winter with the ASC. What are the oportunities for cruising over the winter?

Hi Tony,

There is no formal cruising arranged for the winter months, but cruising is not a formal activity so if you are not there on your own and someone is available to give assistance there is no reason why you shouldn't go sailing.

Don't forget during the winter, you should be waring a wet suit or dry suit.

It would be good to see some interest. But I normally sail on a Friday evening so I usually give up when the sunset gets too early.

Cheers,
Den.

Friday sailing for this year finished a while ago, but let me know when you fancy going down and I'll see if I can make it.

Good to see Harriet and Harry out cruising again this Sunday. It is probably the best time to do it this time of year while there are people and safety boat cover about . Nice day last Sunday for sailing.

Yeah, we'll be out on Sunday. Probably try and fit a bit of casual sailing before the race. I think we'l; be down from about 11.

I prefer to sail on Sundays at the moment. It's nice to be around the club when people are about plus there is the option to picnic and watch the race (or join it, if so inclined).
