Club cruises are all about ‘cruising in company’ and are open to all members and friends be it in a sailing boat or a motorboat. Cruising is a low stress way of getting out on the water with similar people and visiting some of the interesting places that make up the ‘Lower Lakes’ and the Coorong.
The lock through the barrage will be open all season, and cruising into the Coorong is again available on a regular basis.

The Cruising pages contain a wealth of information about cruising around Goolwa, the lakes and the Coorong. It is not a comprehensive list of every destination or a list of every bit of shallow water, but it does cover all the popular destinations and does include some maps and aerial pictures of where you might need to be careful. There are other places you can spend the night on your boat that are just as safe (depending on wind direction) and these are left for you to find as you explore this region. I still remember the wonder of discovering Holmes Creek in a 12 foot dinghy and sailing all the way down to the barrage when my son was only 7 on an afternoon sail from Clayton!

I will be adding cruising stories as I write them, or get someone else to write them. As reading someone elses experiences may include more information about the cruising grounds as well as (hopefully) being entertaining.
