The Cruising Association goes large at Southampton Boat Show

The Cruising Association, founded in 1908 and the largest British-based organisation catering exclusively to the needs of cruising sailors, returns to Ocean Hall at the Yachtmarket.com Southampton Boat Show this year with a larger eye-catching 3m x 5m stand to welcome its members and attract even more cruising enthusiasts to discover the delights of cruising whilst flying the CA burgee.

You win some…

As well as running its popular daily prize draws on the stand as part of the ongoing new member recruitment drive, the winners of two of the CA’s big ticket competitions for CA members only and launched back in January, are being announced at the Show on Press Day 14th September.

The first winner announcement is for the Dream Yacht Charter’s £4,000 prize of a week’s charter on a monohull for up to six people in a fabulous choice of destinations including the Seychelles, Caribbean, Cuba, Mexico and Tahiti. DYC also offers CA members a discount on charter fees and training courses.

The second is for winter berthing in one of sailing’s most beautiful destinations, Venice, courtesy of Venezia Certosa Marina. The lucky winner and their boat will stay afloat in the marina, and can spend weekends with their own Venetian pied à terre flying from England to Venice for as little as £25 each way! Certosa Marina also offers CA members discounts on marina or hotel stays.
