A Big Set Back for the CBYA Dinghies!!


We are very sad to report that we have been ‘broken into’ at El Portet, and our outboard motor has been stolen. In addition the aft locker on the new “Flying Fish” dinghy has had its lid torn off, and our life jackets which were stowed in there have also been taken! They also stole the Flying Fish trailer wheels, and its mainsheet. We are obviously being targeted because they have now also stolen our old rubber dinghy safety boat, as well as the rubber dinghy and cover which was chained up close to our storage box!

A Fun TOMs Cruise & Raft-up!


When I agreed to go sailing a couple of months ago, I obviously was not thinking straight. I’m not a good swimmer, I hate deep water and I get seasick! The closer the day got, the more apprehensive I became.

The day arrived, a glorious one at that, and my husband, John and I walked to the Real Club Naútico de Calpe. Everyone was friendly and welcoming, a good start. John and I were put on a TOM skippered by Dave, with experienced crew member José. Everything seemed so complicated –  I wondered what I’d let myself in for! read more →

CBYA Raft-Up – Tango Bay, Javea – 22 July 2016

The third CBYA raft-up of 2016 took place on Friday 22 July 2016.

Two yachts (Royal Atenea & Feels Great) and two motor boats (Rosbif II and For the Boys) participated. We agreed to meet at the Tango Bay moorings due to the northerly winds, thus securing a more sheltered spot. read more →

A Typical Raft Up Scene


May 2016, some CBYA Boats enjoying the sun, at an early impromptu friendly ‘Raft Up’ in Sardine Bay.

Originally having planned to raft-up near the CN Javea Marina, but it was a bit choppy with the southerly breeze, so they headed for the calm of Sardine Bay. Rosie and Paul braved the chilly water, whilst the rest consumed copious amounts of food and vino Collapso.
