Round Hayling Island Cruise


There will be powerboat support on this cruise.

The annual Round Hayling Cruise is planned to take place on Sunday 15th June 2024 to take maximum advantage of the tides.

Meet at Itchenor  (Grid Ref SU 800015) Post code: PO20 7AW. Please ensure you arrive in plenty of time to be rigged and ready to sail and for a briefing at 10:00.

This is a cruise for the more-experienced sailor and a Miracle-sized dinghy is considered the smallest suitable for this cruise and it must be sea worthy.  It is a full day's sailing so ensure that you have suitable clothing and food and drink with you.

As usual we need to away from Itchenor in good time – PLEASE note the start time of 1000.  Depending on how long you take to rig your boat and do all the other things like drive your car back to the car park and change for the day, you should arrive at Itchenor at least by 0900.

YOU will have to sign on before going afloat (in a similar way to those who go racing) to signify that you wish to be part of the Cruising Group and that you will abide by ALL instructions given at the briefings and instructions that are passed on by Powerboat Crews.  It also means that if you intend to leave the Group after setting out then YOU must inform one of the Powerboat Crew before doing so. The first briefing will be on the Itchenor Hard at 1000.

Make sure that your boat and its equipment are ready for a full day’s sailing, including a suitable towline, spares, refreshments and clothing for any change in the weather.  Let’s hope it will be good!  Please see CMYC website for details on essentials for safe cruising and harbour costs.
