Date Event/Venue Contact Details

There is a default £5 registration fee for each event, payable to the organiser. Rallies are only open to members of the Association - details of how to join the Association are here.

On longer cruises it is best to plan as if you were going to make the trip on your own. Have adequate safety gear, communications, spare parts and tools to suit the itinerary. The other boats are there for company and reassurance, not to be relied upon for basic needs.

Please assist by timely informing the organiser of your intentions regarding participation, before and during the event.
