The SWOG was originally a cruiser racing series aimed at those who were looking for longer passage races, but over the course of time it had rather faded away. But in 2010 it was back and this time to encourage the participation of the novice and cruising sailors. It is now established as a series of cruises in company.

The basic format is that there is a briefing session on the Wednesday evening before each trip at the Club so that people can get to know each other and share some useful advice before they set off. The plan is that everybody arrives at the chosen destination on the Saturday and there is an informal gathering at each destination, which will very likely include wine and possibly cheese, on the quayside.

Everybody then returns to Cardiff on the Sunday,.

Over the years we have visited Watchet, Swansea, Portishead, Lydney, Padstow, Tenby and Bristol. 

I'll be posting more information on the website as it becomes available. You can subscibe to the email list to get the news even quicker here, but don’t forget to add swog@cbyc.co.uk to your address book or whatever you do to stop the mail ending up in your junk mail!
