Over 100 aspiring bluewater cruisers are set to attend World Cruising Club's second annual Bluewater Open Boat Weekend hosted at Berthon Marina in Lymington on 16-17 May. They will have the opportunity to climb aboard a variety of ocean sailing boats, mingle with experienced cruisers and get expert advice to help set sail with the right boat, training, and equipment. Designed to make visitors think about all aspects of living the bluewater dream, the two day free to attend event combines a boatshow, seminar and sailor rendezvous all in one.

During the weekend a selection of bluewater boats will be open for viewing, hosted by experienced offshore sailors, all of whom have sailed transatlantic or further afield.

Balancing out the dockside chat will be a series of seminar presentations and discussions about how to embark on the bluewater dream. On Saturday topics including Rallies & Routes: what, where, when and how, Training for Cruising, Bluewater Cruising Techniques will serve to inspire those planning their adventures. Sunday's sessions will cover practical steps to achieve the dream such as What to look for in a Bluewater Boat, Refitting for Bluewater Cruising and Sails & Rigging Seminar.

Representatives from leading marine companies including Hamble School of Yachting, Professional Yacht Deliveries, Seldon, Elvstrom Sails, Fischer-Panda, Watt & Sea and Mob Mat will also be available to advise on equipping boats and crew for offshore adventures.

The two-day event is free to attend but visitors will need to pre-register beforehand. The flexible programme means people are welcome to attend for a few hours or the whole weekend with those wanting to get more out of the experience able to attend an optional social event on the Saturday night.
