    We are reinstating the UK Cruising Week this year,  and we also have a number of other cruising events on offer;   these are in various different parts of the country,  spread over the course of the season,  and vary in duration from one day to a full week.    If you are interested in cruising,  or merely feel that you would like to try something a little different,  often in superb scenery,  we would love to see you on one or more of these events.

    We also have one event on offer specifically for Series 1 boats (and the equivalent early GRP boats),  and we are working on a Vintage Boats programme for both this year and for our 70th Anniversary celebrations next year.   Again,  if you are interested and have (or have access to) a boat of the right age we would love to see you at one of these events.

    Finally,  if your club would like to offer either a Cruising or a Vintage Boats event,  please let me know,  at cruising@gp14.org.

    For further information please see the Cruising & Vintage Boats page of the website,   https://www.gp14.org/about-the-gp14/cruising/  and/or the Spring issue of Mainsail once that comes out (it is not quite due yet).    Some of the information is developing almost daily,   and as of this afternoon the website page is fully up to date,  and I will try my best to keep it that way!    So do check it regularly for the latest information.

    And it is good to see the number of views of this post creeping up.   Perhaps I could encourage Members to consider taking part in one or more of these events.

    If every person who viewed the original post then booked for the Cruising Week we would have one of the largest on record!

    Seriously,  these events are highly enjoyable,  and we would love to see you at one or more of them.   In one sense it is the people who make the events!

    We have also now had an offer from a member living in North Brittany to run a cruising event there in August,  coinciding with his club’s Regatta,  with the option for participants to take part in both.

    See the Cruising page for further details.

    An interesting programme for 2019 is gradually coming together!!
