Commodores Cruise

This years Commodores Cruise on Saturday 13th  July. It’s one of the best events of the year, when we blast out of the estuary on the morning tide to Hilbre Island and wait patiently for the sand bank to magically appear, spend the day relaxing with our friends from Hoylake & West Kirby S.C.s and intermittently sailing around on beautiful flat water, before sailing back to Dee in the evening on the flooding tide.

Details this year are as follows:

  • Leave the beach at Dee no later than 10:30.
  • The bar will be coming out, don’t forget cash.
  • Some BBQ’s will be set up, so bring some food to cook.
  • And don’t forget to bring a supply of water, snacks and suncream.

As well as sailing out, members and friends can walk out to the other side of Hilbre to get picked up by a RIB, but you must have a buoyancy aid. Either arrange this with someone who you know will be out there or email me on vicecom@dee-sc.co.uk a few days before.

Fingers crossed for the weather!!
