Cruising & Crewing Opportunities

Stafford Coastal Cruising Club meets Autumn to Spring when the lure of sailing, especially in British waters, is not so great.

We are a RYA Training Establishment and offer Courses including RYA Day Skipper Theory during this time. In association with Splash Adventure Training we offer practical and refresher courses in the Solent during the Spring & Summer.

Our Cruises in Company allow suitably-qualified Members to charter a range of yachts, from a charter company in a selected location, providing crewing opportunities and experience building for members. It is also an excellent opportunity for those with little or no sailing experience to “try it out” on one of our organised charters. Cruises are often joined by members with their own boats further adding to the crewing opportunities available.

All Members are invited to register their interest and, subject to numbers, places will be found. This is an excellent opportunity for both owners and non-boat owners to gain experience and enjoy the exhilaration of coastal cruising on a cost sharing basis.

Additionally some Members who have their own boats offer crewing opportunities to others, both in the UK and overseas; this is a personal arrangement.
