Cruising Division

Cruising Division EBY&MBC has a fast-growing and very active cruising division. Boat's range in size from about 18 to 40+ feet, and include steel, wood, GRP & concrete hulls. Races are either 2 race round-the buoys competitions, or longer harbour races, with the occasional Mark Foy start thrown in to spice things up. While the division is by name & nature 'cruising', there is an enjoyable spirit of competition amongst the fleet, with everyone hoping to see their name on one of the many trophies at the end of the season.

Cruising Division

Many of the cruising division crews are to be found at the club galley for Friday evening meals, debating their respective handicaps, or at the club slipway, discussing the merits of different antifoul processes or helping to resolve each other's engine problems. Come Christmas time there is a general exodus of boats to the Marlborough Sounds, where several boats have moorings, and all have a great love of this fantastic cruising ground.
