1. The weather often impacts on cruises, therefore a reserve date for the spring cruise has been included should the weather not allow the first date to be used. The first date for the spring cruise is combined with the start of the Holland cruise.

2. The dates for the day cruises have been selected to allow sufficient water for people to get out to their mooring, take the last of the falling tide down river, be able to stop somewhere for lunch and then return on the rising tide. Destinations will depend on the group and be selected later, likely destinations include Stangate, Queenborough and a longer day out to the Red Sands Forts.

3. Space permitting non-members may be able to join the Club cruises, contact cruiser Class Captain for more information.

4. More detailed planning meetings are to be held for the Holland and France Cruises.
The meetings will look at possible locations to be visited on the cruises, all are welcome to attend, those thinking of participating in the cruises (Skippering or Crewing) and particularly anyone who is willing to share experience of locations that may be of interest to the group.

If you require further information on any planned event or have any suggestions for events please contact me by email info@medwaycruisingclub.org.uk
