2 TSASA Cruising Events from the Cruising Captain Roy Martin coming soon

If you are interested in participating in a cruise you must complete a standard Cruise Entry Form and forward it to the designated Event Leader or organiser. Hard copy forms can be provided by the Event Leader if required.

Note all dates are 'on the water dates', that is, they are the launch and retrieval dates and do not include road travelling time unless otherwise specified. 

The committee have tried to have some new destinations both in and out of SA school holidays and wish to remind  members that quite often other members will be in the cruise location both before and after the set cruise dates if one has to come early or late to at least join part of the cruise.
