The RYCV Magical Mystery Tour is here again.

The RYCV Magical Mystery Tour is an opportunity for boats with limited offshore experience to sail outside the heads in company on short coastal cruises. There will be one overnight passage and RYCV ex-pilot launch Thorsen will accompany the fleet.

Tour Dates: 2-8 January 2017



This is a mystery tour and the itinerary will be decided each evening by a council of skippers after consideration of the weather situation.  No one will be pressured to participate in any legs that they are not comfortable with.  


Please contact the event coordinators if you have any questions
