The recreational boating group is open to all types of boat: Sail or Power, Big or Small with the emphasis on enjoying your vessels on the water in a less competitive and family friendly environment.

RMYS has an active and social cruising group. The highlight of the cruising calendar is the Flinders Cruise in March each year, which culminates in a seafood extravaganza at Flinders Yacht Club. We also offer monthly on-water activities as well as Squadron Sunday Sailing at the end of every month, ideal for those looking something a bit more competitive but still relaxed and safe.
