Whitstable Cruise

We have not planned a Whitstable Cruise for 2018 but hope to do so in the future - so watch this space

The previous Whitstable cruise was on the Saturday of the ‘Oyster’ festival. The tides were good for a trip to ‘The Shipwright's Arms’ or ‘The Harty Ferry’ for lunch. Launching and recovery was about mid-tide, so easier than the previous year. It was busy so cruisers aimed to be there by 8.00 – 8.15am so boats could be dropped off, and the cars parked before it got too crowded. Whitstable Sailing Club provided excellent breakfasts, so there was plenty of time to eat, chat and rig the boats before setting off.

Some members stayed overnight either in B+B or at the sailing club. There is always lots to see and do, whether sailing or not at the ‘Oyster’ festival, so it was worth making a weekend of it ! 

How to book:

A reminder is sent out before each cruise. You phone or email me to book a place the Wednesday before, by 9pm. If you would like extra support; to crew for someone; someone to crew for you, let me know when you book. If you have booked on the cruise and it needs to be cancelled, you will be notified on the Friday before by 9pm.
