NUSC SUMMER CRUISE 2021 …… Advance Notice

June 29 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

NUSC SUMMER CRUISE 2021 …… Advance Notice
Your Cruising Captain Calling!
There will be a pre-cruise get together at NUSC Club on Tuesday 29th June @ 7.0pm or 19.00Hrs for salty old sailors. for all those interested in participating in the planned cruise to Milford Haven as displayed on the notice board in the Club entrance / Foyer.
It is not essential to commit to the whole cruise …… whichever leg or destination you feel fits with your available time / inclination ….. its the taking part that counts.
I will be attempting to create a Watsap Group for those wishing to participate which will facilitate a common communication channel for those taking part ….. bearing in mind that communication will depend upon a decent phone signal being available ?? Also we can share boat names and call signs etc for appropriate VHF communications! Confirming channels to be used ….. we dont wanna be using 16 unecessarily.
Those folks who have been down to the club recently will have seen the proposed cruise itinerary posted on the notice board.
Come along if you can, bring any charts or relevant info covering the proposed destinations en-route. It would be good to get to know folks a bit better and get some idea of the number of boats contemplating the trip as well as which legs (or all legs) so stop overs / anchorages / marinas / sailing clubs etc can be discussed …. I know we would be welcome at the Llanstefan boat club up the River Towy !! its a bit of a tricky entrance but can be done safely. (need to talk tides and stuff !!) also I may be able to arrange a pilotage in !! ….. also need to know keel configurations etc .
An important feature of the cruise will be to try to pin down dates , times and places for stop overs which will allow everyone to get together along the way not least give any road going other halves / friends who are not too keen on the watery bits of the trip, to rendezvous with the participants.
IF you cant make the meeting dont panic … but you can still get in touch with me by email / phone …. see noticeboard in the club.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I have just had my boat (Tranona ….. an Eventide 26) Surveyed) and am striving to get her ready for the water before the end of July……..!! The start date may have to be a little flexible ……….. Try to make the meeting and all will be revealed.
John.
