The EMSWORTH CRUISING ASSOCIATION was formed in 1966 by a group of boat owners based in Emsworth Yacht Harbour.   Although the membership has increased and is now much more widely spread, Emsworth in Chichester Harbour is still our focal point.

Our objective is to promote and facilitate cruising in boats.  We do this by setting a programme of rallies and events each year in which sailing yachts and motorboats can participate in a mutually supportive way.  We are a family inclusive club that encourages the newcomer to cruising to enjoy their sailing safely and most of all to make it fun.

  • Elwing 2016 Pt 6 I've been here before. 15/8 Lesconil -> Audierne Weather as before. Rocks as before. Re-tried a restaurant I'd been to before. 1st Menu choice was 'off', so was the 2nd, & the 3rd. Should have taken the warning: what wasn't 'off' was also off!...
  • Elwing 2016 Pt 5 Back to soundings! 8/8 St Gilles sur Vie -> L'Herbaudière Started a bit late here and the wind was on the nose again plus the tide didn't want to help either. Squeezed round the rocks as tight as I dared and into port at 19:10. 9/8 L'Herbaudiè...
  • Elwing 2016 Pt 4 There, & back again 1/8 Sables d'Olonne -> La Rochelle More sun, with wind in the pm. On down the coast, inside Île de Ré and under the bridge (easy clearance but the water is a bit lumpy). La Rochelle has the iconic 2 towers entrance but no...
