VDL – Cruises 2017
WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF THE CHOICES FLOORING 2017 VAN DIEMENS LAND CIRCUMNAVIGATION CRUISE!
If a challenging 800 nautical mile cruise-in-company around Tasmania with experienced, friendly people appeals to your sense of adventure, then don’t delay in registering your interest in this truly unique and unforgettable event. The cruise is gaining a considerable national and international reputation and a place in the 45-boat fleet may be hard to obtain closer to the start of the event.
The dates for the 2017 Choices Flooring VDL-C Cruise have been tentatively scheduled to begin in Hobart on Wednesday 15th February 2017 and take 35 days to return to Hobart. Please download the Notice of Cruise, for more information
The reason for announcing this event so far in advance is to give the cruising fraternity in general and each prospective participant far and wide plenty of time to decide whether or not to include the cruise in their plans for 2017.
For the last few cruises the RYCT has received many more expressions of interest in participating in the cruise than there are positions in the 45-boat fleet. If it is your intention to participate it advisable indicate this by completing the requisite form and paying the deposit. Once this is done, a position in the fleet is assured, providing the boat and its crew satisfy the various safety and other requirements. The deposit is refundable upon subsequent withdrawal – subject to our published refund policy.
For those already accepted as prospective participants, further information and news updates about the cruise are published on the News & Notices web page. From time to time, people contact the Royal Yacht Club wanting a position as crew, or a skipper wanting a crew; these will be posted as they are received.
