Cruiser Fleet

Desborough has large and active cruiser fleet consisting of about 20 boats. Mooring  is provided by the club on the Thames and in the adjacent Millbrook Creek.  Trailer-Sailor berths are available on-shore, close to an efficient 'cruiser' slipway, at very attractive rates.
 
We have an active racing program for the cruisers and the fleet races on a handicap pursuit basis. It is surprising how close these large boats are at the end of an hour and a half race.
 
We are looking to increase the interest in this fleet and as such welcome newer members to take part crewing in our races and to come and experience the JOY of sailing in a cruiser.
 
The cruiser fleet also enjoys an active social side with events such as club treasure hunts where the whole club takes to the water in the cruiser fleet to look for clues down this picturesque part of the Thames.  Members also get-together and take part in cruises both up and down The River, and it is not unknown for members to make water-borne visits to nearby river-side hostelries.
