    Bembridge marina beckons for an overnight stay.  This exceptionally friendly marina has been improved over the years and definitely warrants a visit.  This short rally will allow you to sample the delights of navigating the twists and turns of the channel to sample a well earned pint once happily docked.  Tom Cunliffe is a great fan of Bembridge so check out his YouTube video (

    Summer cruising event of the year - West Country here we come...


    Treat yourself to two weeks of excellent sailing visiting a raft of delightful ports all along the South Coast of Great Britain.

    Destinations will include:-






                       Helford River



               Newton Ferrers


       Swanage/Studland Bay


    Channel Sailing Club has come to an arrangement with the almighty and is guaranteeing the finest weather for the entire two weeks with fair easterlies for the trip down and westerlies back plus the odd smattering of north-westerlies to keep the waves duly tamed.

    Block out these weeks for the best cruise of the year (so far).    
    Note:  On line registrations close Saturday night 2 weeks before the event.

    Bastille Day Cruise

    Patrick the organiser for this event has family connections in St Valery-en-Caux. He  is currently looking into 2 options.The preferred choice is:- 

    Littlehampton(10th)-Brighton(11th)-Fecamp(12/13th)-St Valery en Caux(14/15th)-Dieppe(16th)-Home

    With  a back-up route- St Vaast(10/11)-Grandcamp(12th)-Port en Bessin(13th)-Courseille(14/15th)-Ouistreham/Caen(16th)-Home

    • Lay days could be varied depending on preferences.
    • Tides look good for either route.

    Obviously depends on the opening up of a UK-France Covid corridor!

    This has always been a great favourite of the club and well worth the sail across the channel.  Do you recognise the port in the picture below?
