The Cruising Group are Island Sailing members who enjoy sailing together locally and on flotillas.  Joining cruising events are a great opportunity to meet other members and sailors, explore destinations, and simply have fun sailing!

Cruising events can be great learning experiences as well - gain confidence with bridges, locks, anchoring, and more as part of a supportive group of experienced and enthusiastic sailors.
