ASA Cruising offers coastal and offshore cruising in company with likeminded skippers and crews with a number of Solent, South Coast and cross Channel Rallies held throughout the season. Although mainly South coast based there have been ASA Rallies in the Scilly Isles, Scottish waters, the East Coast and in the Mediterranean. We are limited only by time, weather and imagination.
All ASA members, as well as their families and friends, are welcome to attend and the rallies offer the chance to enjoy sailing in company; whether this is to gain confidence for less experienced skippers or for the companionship and perhaps the challenge of sailing within a fleet (after all two yachts going the same way are always racing). Once in a snug anchorage or secured alongside in a marina there are pontoon parties, “safari” suppers or evenings in local hostelries to enjoy with like minded people.
Rallies and other events are available below and suggestions are always welcome for more. Rally Hosts to organise individual events are also encouraged. For those with a competitive spirit there is also the Cruising Class in the ASA Offshore Regatta to take part in.
For more information, please contact the Rear Commodore Cruising.
