The Weymouth and Portland Cruising Association is one of the most active sailing groups in the Weymouth & Portland area. We have a wide range of sailing skills from beginners owning their first boat and people new to sailing, who wish to gain experience crewing, to solo transatlantic sailors.
We meet almost every Tuesday at Castle Cove Sailing Club, and through the winter we have talks on three Tuesdays of the month, which are very popular. When we don't have a talk we meet anyway! There is an extensive summer cruising programme with local day cruises as well as longer adventures to the West Country, the Solent, Ireland, France, and Spain.
We have a very pleasant crowd of people, and virtually no property. And a lively club magazine, The Cruiser.
Our fleet lists over fifty boats, from hardy day sailers to heavy cruisers, with a few fast fliers in between. And the number of motor-cruisers is steadily increasing. There are swinging moorings in Portland Harbour for members' use.
You are very welcome to come and say 'Hello', on a Tuesday evening at Castle Cove Sailing Club 1930-2300.
Do come more than once, it may take time to be noticed!
