March 2019

Motley crew – great bunch of people, lovely sunny day, but not much wind.


Eight of us enjoyed a wonderful day’s cruise along the coast from Dénia Marina, heading south towards Portichol and Cap Negre, but we never even made it to Cala Sardinera. A very nice surprise on arrival at Nautica Corcho was the boat upgrade from the Jeanneau Sun Odysea 39, to the 44!

2019 AGM Reports and Minutes


The CBYA 2019 Annual General Meeting, took place at Jávea Players’ Studio Theatre, Jávea, on Monday 4th March.

Only 35 members attended, with 26 staying for the meal.

Since we currently have a total full membership of 340 members, this turn-out was extremely poor! Just 10.3% of  the total. This was particularly disappointing given the amount of work expended by your Committee in preparing for, and running the meeting, and our decision to move the meeting to Jávea this year in the hope that we would get better attendance! We hope to see more of you at the 2020 AGM!
