Solo Cruise in Company to Port Vincent 10-11 September 2022

The CYCSA Cruising Association is offering an opportunity for short handed sailors to follow the fleet in company and share a bbq together in the new Port Vincent club facilities Saturday night.

Promoting safety at sea this is NOT a race but an opportunity to put into practise those extra measures to increase your safety awareness when short handed sailing.

An important attribute for a solo sailor is independence. Whilst you will be supported in an attentive fleet, responsibility and liability remains with the Skipper.

Recommended minimum safety equipment for short handed sailing:

  • Lifejackets
  • Hand held radio on the Skipper
  • PLB (encouraged)
  • Jackstays and harness
  • Log on/off with VMR Ardrossan on VHF Ch 80.  VMR Ardrossan will be briefed.
  • Maintain a watch on VHF Ch 16

As always, cruising is weather dependent and the decision to start or return rests with the skipper. Please monitor forecasts in the lead up to the event.
