Royal Cruising Club ‘Round Ireland Cruise in Company’.
The RCC is organising a round Ireland Cruise in Company this year.  There will be four focal points around the coast.  The cruise will start at Crosshaven on 2nd June (organiser is Paul Bryans RCC/ICC) and then move on to Inishbofin on 23rd June (organiser is Des Moran RCC/ICC), Rathlin Island on 6 July (organiser Ed Wheeler with John Clementson, both RCC/ICC), and end at the RIYC at Dun Laoghaire on 14 July (organiser Terry Johnson, RCC/ICC).  The overall cruise coordinator is Paul Heiney RCC.
The emphasis is on companionable cruising and informal meetings in anchorages between these focal points and the RCC hopes that ICC members will join those sections that fit in with their cruising plans – some may choose just to participate in one or two of the get-togethers.   In planning the timetable the different organisers have been mindful of the importance of allowing time to take in the pleasures of cruising Irish Waters, the joys of exploring some of the many nooks and crannies for oneself as well as enjoying the craic.

Please let John Clementson know if you think that you might like to join the cruise at any point.
