On the Water

Participants in ICOYC Forums and Cruises share a love of being on the water and take advantage of their time together to have fun and enjoy their shared interest. Cruises are hosted by ICOYC Member Clubs drawing on local knowledge and facilities to make each cruise unforgettable. Forums feature the Commodores' Cup and evening or day cruises, often in club members' power boats. The Summer Cruises are more extensive and are organized by one or more member clubs and feature their favorite cruising waters. Occasionally a Summer Cruise is tied to a World Commodores Forum, either before or after the forum.

ICOYC Cruises

The ICOYC Cruises section describes the past cruises as well as planned ones. The section for upcoming cruises contains details about the cruise and how to join it while the section on past cruises contains reports of the cruises, some photos, and organizational details.

Cruises are for all Members of ICOYC Clubs

All members of an ICOYC club are eligible to participate in an ICOYC cruise. Contact your club's representative for more details or send a message to webeditor@icoyc.org.


Why Cruising and Cruising Members are a Vital Part of a Healthy Club's Set of Activities

Racing is a key activity in all of the ICOYC member clubs and cruising often is relegated to a lower level of interest. Read a thoughtful discussion of why a strong cruising program should part of each club's list of activities. ICOYC Past President John Stork penned this article in May 2012. Read it HERE.


Youth Exchange Program

The intent behind the Youth Exchange Programme is to drive and help exchanges, training and tours among ICOYC Member Clubs to improve and broaden the skills of younger sailors, and to increase motivation and interest in the clubs (and sport). Read more details in HERE.
