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.
