Woodbridge Cruising Club members are looking forward to the start of the sailing season, and are preparing boats for the first cruise. 

On-shore activities are continuing apace, with the Burn’s Night supper a highlight. Wednesday suppers are a convivial evening, with delicious home-cooked food and the chance to socialise, and the fortnightly Thursday walks are enjoyed by members and dogs, and finish with a welcome meal at a local pub.  

The ultimate walk of 2023 was a stroll around Sutton Heath Sandlings and a meal at the Plough, and the New Year’s Day walk was a gentle stroll around Woodbridge, finishing with homemade soup at the clubhouse on a perfect sunny winter’s day. 

Future Sunday talks include a talk by Felixstowe Coast Patrol. 

If you want to brush up on your navigation skills or need the DAC Radio Licence, WCC operates courses open to the general public in spring 2024. The RYA Day Skipper course runs on February weekends, and the DSC radio course is March. It is a legal requirement in order to operate a DSC radio, you need the current course and not the old-style VHF. 

Although the official cruising season is over this year, the club still has a thriving spring social scene.

If you have a genuine interest in sailing and the sea, have a look at our programme of maritime-related events on our website at: www.woodbridgecruisingclub.org. New members are always welcome.
