|Many of the club members are interested in cruising, some with dreams of distant shores in the future. The Cruising contingent gets together early in the year to plan cruises for the entire year. Many of the cruises are multi-day cruises Ė some spent on anchor and some at marinas. Each cruise has a host Cruise Captain volunteer to determine the nature and destination(s) of their hosted cruise.
Cruise information is coordinated by the BBSA Fleet Cruising Captain, who maintains the cruising calendar and supporting documents to make cruise planning easy. Documents available on this website include
What Is a Cruise?
A cruise is a scheduled sailing trip with an individual Cruise Captain to organize it. BBSA cruises can include weekend and multi-week cruises and cruises associated with special events. Cruises can be oriented around a topic (Derby Day), a destination (Cape Charles), an event (Memorial Day), or a focus, such as family, long-distance, offshore, or relaxation. Multiple cruises may be scheduled for the same time periods, but they should have different purposes or audiences when they overlap so they complement each other and donít compete for the same group of cruisers. For example, a long-distance cruise may be underway when a local family cruise is also scheduled.
