Cruisers

Cruiser Racing

Exe Sailing Club members cruise the world but more often the English Channel and the ports of Devon and Cornwall.  By its very nature cruising is a 'get away from it all' activity but members meet regularly in distant ports by arrangement or good fortune.  Members frequently require crews to accompany them. Yachts range in size from small day sailors up to around 40 feet.

Cruiser racing is very popular and takes place mainly Tuesdays and Thursdays on summer evenings at sea.  All types and sizes take part with a 'Fast Fleet' for the high performance craft and 'Club Class' for the more Cruiser oriented competitors.

We also have a number of weekend cruises and races, concluding with our season finale, the River Exe Champagne Challenge coastal race, usually to Brixham, organised by Exe Sailing Club.  It attracts most of the Club fleet and visitors from other clubs on the river also.

The Club's annual 'Wine Run', usually held in June, is a popular event. Crews return with tales to tell and their wine purchases for the associated Wine Tasting Competition.  Ports visited in recent years include Cherbourg, St. Vaast la Hougue, Carteret and Treguier.
