Great CBYA Cruise to Formentera


CBYA Cruise 2018: Formentera


A week’s CBYA cruise on Tricky D was a resounding success, with founding and new CBYA members enjoying a week’s sailing around Formentera.

Richard Jones offered CBYA members a week’s cruise to the islands. Four crew signed up: Brenda Bates, Jim Cooper, Jurgen Jeebe, and Amanda Topson. Thanks to the patience of our skipper and his first mate, also a qualified skipper, it was a great opportunity for less experienced members to improve their sailing skills, gain confidence and knowledge of the area.
