Cruising

Cruising

Camden Yacht Club generally schedules 3–4 cruises per summer for the benefit of all club members. Two cruises are 3 days long and typically range close to Camden. These are more “get ready” type cruises. One or two long cruises are generally planned for later in the summer. These go “downeast” or into Canada for those who enjoy extended cruising with the support of friendly boats nearby.

For those with boats, either sail or power, it is a chance to gather in more remote setting to enjoy Maine and the comradery gained though small group gatherings. Non-boating members are welcome to join in during the cruises at various mainland stop over locations. Members are free to participate in all or part of each cruise based on their personal schedules. The goal of the club cruises is to have fun, gain experience and to build close, lasting friendships.

Details of each cruise are sent to members via email or are available at the dockhouse. Changes to each cruise’s itinerary are common based on wind and weather. Typically there is VHF check-in each morning to assure everyone has the latest information on destination changes. Updates to itinerary changes are emailed back to the dockhouse when possible.

Members are encouraged to join in regardless of skill level.
