Sailing Cruising

This is an informal group of cruising enthusiasts – our objective is to provide a platform for sailors to share their knowledge and passion for cruising and schedule opportunities for casual cruises. The casual cruisers group frequently meets during the club’s Friday Happy Hour to socialize and share food, wine, good company, and stories.  Sergio Diehl, Fleet Captain for Sailboat Cruising, is in charge of the group’s annual schedule. The HYC-CC regularly schedules casual cruises to Sarah’s Creek, Reedville, Jackson Creek, Norfolk Yacht & Country Club, Warwick Yacht Club, Mobjack Bay, the Eastern Shore and other destinations.
