If you are not content with simply racing, or perhaps just prefer to travel in a more relaxed manner afloat, the RSrnYC Cruising Section boasts a fine and varied selection of activities for Members and friends to participate in.

At the Royal Southern, we offer cruising for those who enjoy a more relaxed way of enjoying the sublime Solent conditions. During the course of each month throughout the season, the Cruising Committee have planned such a wide variety of events, that there is something going on just about every week.
The Cruising Group uses Whatsapp Groups – Mid Week rallies, Family Cruise, Solent Cruiser Race, Mediterranean etc. If you are interested in joining any of these groups please email Pat North (
