SWOG 2017

Published on 5 Feb 2017 by

The dates for this year's SWOGging are announced. The SWOG is a series of weekends and longer cruises away from the Club. It's a great way to get away on your boat in the company of other Club members to local ports. You can read all about the SWOG and see all the posters here.

The most obvious change this year is the introduction of a SWOG++. This is a two week cruise away that will hopefully take us to Ireland.

The second and still fairly obvious change is that the first SWOG weekend will be bifurcated. You can choose either Watchet or Padstow. This recognises that some will take in Padstow as part of a longer time away while for others its just a bit too far for just a long weekend.

The last and barely obvious at all change is that each weekend will be hosted by a volunteer deputy assistant SWOGmaster. There are currently seven vacancies for this role. Successful candidates will have to show a passion for cheap wine and snack products. An awareness of real cheese and even fruit is an advantage. The ability to communicate with the fleet, coordinate with harbourmasters and other stuff is essential. These exciting opportunities are open to any adult CBYC member. Full training can be provided at no cost.
