The 2017 UKWA Cruising Conference took place last weekend at Notts County Sailing Club. An excellent turnout, and we were fortunate to have sunshine on both days, with just a touch of frost at night to remind us that it’s still early in the season.

Thank you for the feedback forms that were completed – these are much appreciated, not least so that we can make next year’s event even better! The plan for 2018 is to concentrate on the aspects of cruising which happen when the boat is still, or almost so – things like mooring, anchoring, tents, food etc.

We’re always keen to receive outstanding hi-res photos, so if you have a particular favourite from the weekend please send it in, either to the website or to the Wayfarer News editor, Jeremy Norman. (Both email addresses are in the contacts section above.
