INTRODUCTION

 

WHO:
The Club has a small but active cruising division. The fleet is comprised of a wide variety of yachts and range of experience. Beginners are very welcome and there is a lot that can be learnt over a glass or two of wine and some excellent food on one of the many weekend cruises.

WHEN:
A cruising program is published each year (see below). Events are planned every 4-6 weeks.

For those fortunate ladies and gentlemen of leisure, there is an informal cruise every Wednesday (fine weather only). Meet at the Clubhouse at 10.00 a.m. and the group will decide which boats to take out for an enjoyable day’s cruising and lunch. If you would like more information on the Wednesday cruises, please contact David Lyall on 9918 2335.

WHERE:
The Club has seven moorings in the Pittwater/Hawkesbury waters (click here for mooring page). These moorings are available to paid-up ASC Boat Owner members and are often the meeting place for cruising yachts.

Most cruises take place in these local waters, with trips to Sydney Harbour and occasional longer trips up or down the coast.

OCEAN CRUISING:

Ocean Cruising is outside the scope of Avalon Sailing Club to manage.

REPORTS:
Cruising reports (see end of this page) contain many stories detailing the adventures of the cruising division and provide an idea of typical cruising activities

OTHER EVENTS:
ASC Boat Owner members are also entitled to compete in a number of other events without paying additional race fees. These events include: The new Avalon Series (replacing the Family Series), the Two Island Race, Crews Race, the Challenger Head /Bitter End Trophies; and the Winter Series

ENQUIRIES:
Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.
