Summer Cruiser Race & Rally

The Summer Cruise from Cherbourg to Deauville. The dates are July 20th to 27th and you can add an extended stay if you wish.

We plan to start in Cherbourg and end in Deauville; the likely ports are St Vaast, Ouistreham, Le Havre and Deauville.

There will be a briefing at the Marina Restaurant in Cherbourg on Friday 19th July at 1830 followed by the start of cruise dinner. The format will be to race or cruise together between the destinations and to meet up on arrival. The pace will be leisurely with days in port to enjoy the locations as well as the be pontoon parties and meals ashore. The week will end with the Prize Giving and canap├ęs at the Deauville Yacht Club at noon on 27th July. All the marina berths will be booked for you.

Our Cruiser Races permit the use of engine so that there is time to socialise and enjoy the seafood, cheese, cider,wine and Calvados of Normandy.

There is a trophy for double handed teams, kindly presented by Mike Austin.
