It's not too late to join us on one of this season's fantastic Cruising Club events. See here for booking forms and photos

There’s still time to sign up to this year’s Motor Boats Monthly Cruising Club programme.

In early June, our first two-week cruise departs from the Solent and heads to the Channel Islands and Brittany in France.

So why not shake off those credit crunch blues by filling up with duty-free diesel in Jersey and Guernsey?

In July we have the Channel Islands and West Country Cruise, taking advantage again of cheap fuel and other duty-free items in the Channel Islands, before visiting the picturesque ports and harbours of the West Country.

Our last cruise of the year will see us venturing up the Seine to Paris. This two-week jaunt is currently fully booked, but with no waiting list there is still a chance you could join us.

If a two-week trip doesn’t suit, you might consider our first shakedown event of the year – the Royal Southern Yacht Club Motorboat Open Weekend. Taking place over the last weekend in May, the event is a great mixture of on-the-water activities and off-water socialising.
