Description

South West Cruising Conference 2018

The South West Cruising Conference will take place on 13 January 2018 at South Devon College in Paignton, Devon.

Following the huge success of the 2016 & 2017 conferences, this event is set to become a regular part of the cruising yachtsman’s January calendar.

The full day of presentations and activity will cover a wide variety of topics, ranging from marina developments to running repairs to boats and winches. The main focus will be on providing help and advice to those preparing for a longer cruise, and there will be ample opportunities for attendees to ask questions of the presenters.
