Cruising is a marvelous pursuit. Using a boat to wander about, making passages to distant places and then investigating coastal waters and unfamiliar ports and venues, quiet anchorages, time with friends and family, master of your own destiny, no time pressure….

Whether it is along the South West Coast of Ireland, beyond the Old Head of Kinsale or just to Oysterhaven and back or across the Atlantic to the Caribbean, its all cruising. It doesn’t matter if it is a sailing boat or a power boat, its all about the living aboard and connecting with the concept of moving about and living on the sea. Many of Kinsale Yacht Club’s members use their boats for cruising as well as racing. Often crew are needed for the delivery and passage making to and from the cruising grounds. Make enquiries in the club.
