Logs & Blogs

Have an adventure to share? Let us know…

 

This facility is open to all club members to display their logs & blogs, be they of current or past cruises.

Please advise Vanessa (club@rciyc.com) if you have a blog for us to post on this page!  The Merryl Lyle Cruising Trophy is awarded to the best entry and is presented at the Annual Dinner & Dance in February.

Over the last few years the number of members entering the Log Competition has declined.  Few members now seem to keep narrative logs.  This decline is probably partly due to those who undertake significant cruises using blogs on the internet to keep their family and friends informed of their progress. As a result the Competition is now open to “Logs & Blogs”.

There is only one rule: the cruise must be under the RCIYC burgee. The boat (motor or sail) does not need to be owned by the entrant and can be chartered or flotilla.
