There are approximately 50 yachts listed in the cruising division. Yachts range in size from 24 feet up to about 45 feet. Most are owned and sailed by couples but several are sailed single handed.

The Cruising Division attracts those who enjoy cruising in company with other yachts and members regularly sail in company to Rottnest, Mindarie, Garden Island, Fremantle, Mandurah, Rockingham and Quindalup. On average, about 15 yachts would sail together at any one time. Some members of the Cruising Division are currently circumnavigating Australia and sailing across the Pacific.

The Cruising Division is an extremely sociable, active and colourful bunch and, in addition to sailing together, they hold numerous land based activities such as progressive dinners between their yachts, annual Christmas and New Year's Eve parties and dinghy trips up the Swan River. 

We meet at the Club every second Thursday evening of the month for dinner, a guest speaker and information on upcoming events. If you're considering joining Cruising in Company, you are most welcome to come and say hello at any of our meetings, or just get in touch with Rob, our Cruising Captain! We hope to welcome you soon!

Australia Day Cruise to RockinghamAus Day Cruise Group web

The Rockingham cruise from HYC to TCYC was enjoyed by 13 Cruising in Company yachts who enjoyed the sail to Rockingham with many leaving before 6am a day earlier, to make use of a more easterly breeze.

At 6pm on Australia Day, all cruisers boarded Eaglehearts to enjoy a BYO dinner and drinks to share. After some great conversation and a sumptuous feast we all watched the magnificent fireworks explode from the end of the Rockingham jetty. Many thanks to Nick, our gracious host for the evening.

The next morning saw us all at Spill the Beans cafe at Palm Beach jetty for breakfast and coffees. As the weather was wonderful some enjoyed a game or two of Finska on the beach, while others took to the water on kayaks and SUP boards for most of the day. In the early evening we all gathered at The Cruising Yacht Club for pre dinner drinks and dinner. On Monday the Cruising in Company yachts headed back to Hillarys in very nice sailing conditions.
