Come Cruising at the Alfreds

Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club

Cruising at the Alfreds

For those who enjoy sailing at your own pace and in your own time, relaxing in an idyllic maybe exotic location, and even enjoying the occasional sundowner, RPAYC cruising events may be for you! Cruising activities are organised by the RPAYC Cruising Committee for all members and their sailing friends.

The aim of these events is to create a Club atmosphere in which members can enjoy non-competitive sailing, to encourage participation in organised cruise events, to share interesting and educational sailing information and to give club members more opportunities to meet other members and use the facilities of the club.

The RPAYC Cruising Committee organises a comprehensive event schedule which includes education evenings with expert and informative speakers, social events and sailing activities.

Stay up to date with events and activities of Cruising by joining the Cruising Newsletter today.

As a member of this great club, you have amazing opportunities for racing and cruising.
When you want to take a leisurely sail with family and friends to explore and relax, come with Alfreds Cruising. We like to relax, make new friends and go exploring.

Our cruising members have many miles of experience, not only in our own Pittwater, but up and down the coast from Queensland to Tasmania.
