George Cruising folk
Come and join us for the Annual Cruise Dinner and share some stories and special moments on a Summer of cruising adventures
The 2016 George Cruise saw eight George boats converge on Peel, in the Isle of Man for the weekend of 11th – 14th August. Boats that left early enjoyed a rollicking great wind and some exhilarating sailing. The main fleet departed from the George immediately after Thursday Night Sailing Supper, and quickly settled into a night-sail to Peel. Negotiating the lock gate and swing bridge into Peel harbour was a bit of a novelty for most but well executed by all. A great night of food, drink and easy camaraderie was a suitable reward. The trip back started for most with another night-sail. In slackening winds most boats mustered off Lambay for Sunday morning brunch before returning to the George early on Sunday afternoon. Isn’t it amazing what can be done in a (stretched) weekend?
A number of George boats sailed from France to Northern Spain, some others sailed in the Ionian, while yet others just slipped their moorings and took off quietly to places near and far. And not to forget, the Squib sailors who chartered four boats in Greece for a spot of r-n-r after all that racing. Cruising is indeed a broad church and those who participate in cruising of any kind are welcome to join us for the Annual Cruising Dinner
