ASA Cruising Rallies Join the ASA Today

Yachts in the Channel

Welcome to the ASA Cruising Division

The ASA Cruising Division is formed around yachts belonging to the Regimental & Service Yacht Clubs and privately owned yachts berthed at the Army Offshore Sailing Centre and undertakes Solent, South Coast and cross Channel Rallies throughout the season.  Although mainly South coast based there have been a number of ad-hoc Rallies off the Scottish Coast, the East Coast and in the Mediterranean.

All ASA members as well as families and friends are welcome to attend and many of the Service Yachts offer discounted rates* if attending an ASA rally.

The rallies offer the chance to sail in company whether this is to gain confidence for less experienced skippers or for the companionship and dare I say challenge of sailing within a fleet (after all two yachts going the same way are always racing)!

Once in a snug anchorage or secured alongside in a marina there are pontoon parties or “safari” suppers to enjoy with likeminded people.

For those with a competitive spirit there is also the Cruising Class in the ASA Offshore Regatta to take part in. 

For more information, please contact the Cruising Secretary or the AOSC Manager.  Our planned Rallies and other events are available on the drop down menu under the Cruising tab.  Please feel free to suggest more and we are always looking for Rally Hosts to organise individual events.

Fair winds and see you on the water.

*discount is at the discretion of individual service yacht providers
