Join us for CPYC cruises to welcoming destinations and improve your navigation and boatmanship in a safe environment.  We exchange navigation tips, “buddy” together to/from CPYC and destination, help with docking and keep in touch by radio.  Each boat is responsible for their own navigation and passage but help is nearby!

We share meals, swap stories, laugh, sing, have contests with prizes and get to know each other and members of host clubs better.

This year we will start with trips to public marinas with more options for social distancing and restaurants then start going to yacht clubs as they open up.

Most cruises have an option to stay one night or more and even join by automobile.  Signups open up about a month before the cruise.

Please email us at with questions and feedback!
