Members of ESC Cruiser Section (both sail and motor) enjoy a comprehensive and active programme both on and off the water. We have a long tradition of cruising in company, participating in ‘fun races’ and sailing together in a relaxed sociable atmosphere to destinations in the Solent, South Coast and across the channel.

For those with a competitive spirit we organise each year two or three races against and in association with our neighbours Emsworth Slipper SC. These joint events give our cruiser members and their crew the opportunity to enjoy a degree of competitive sailing round simple but extended courses with the prospect of a most sociable evening at the end of the day – not to mention the inter-club camaraderie at the prizegiving!

Our annual programme of cruising rallies, led informally by a nominated cruise leader, usually end the sailing day with a ‘sundowner pontoon party’ followed by dinner in a local yacht club or hostelry – a great way for members who are new to the Club or to cruiser sailing to get to know better sailing destinations and fellow Club members. Our more long-standing members enjoy being able to further develop their Club friendships and making new ones with our newer members.
