Cruising

AYC’s main cruising events each year are the Tall Cactus Regatta in the spring and the Governor’s Cup between Thanksgiving and Christmas (ostensibly both are races, but they’re more cruising than racing). And throughout the year, AYC members are cruising at various places throughout the world.

We’d like to know about your trips and your plans! Send us your stories and pictures for this section.

And coordinate your cruising with the Cruising Captain, so we can all play along.

If you have any ideas for a fun time on the lake please share!
