Last Chance to Sign Up for the CBYA Flotilla Cruise to Formentera!


The postponed one week CBYA cruise to Ibiza /Formentera is now confirmed to start from Dénia on Saturday 23rd June 2018, and we plan to get back on Saturday 30th June 2018.

The lead yacht will be CBYA member-owned, TrickyD, with her very experienced skipper, Richard Jones. There are a few crew places left on TrickyD, available on a first come- first served basis. Unfortunately, no other CBYA-owned yachts are able to join this cruise on the selected dates, however we are happy to investigate chartering a yacht if there is adequate additional confirmed crew interest. CBYA-member owned power boats are also welcome to join the cruise.
