Welcome to the cruising page of the RYCT website. It contains information about the club’s cruising activities and publications, including forthcoming cruises and accounts of past cruises.


The following document details the minimum safety requirements for vessels participating in the Royal Yacht Club of Tasmania (RYCT) cruising events in south-east Tasmanian waters. Longer distance cruises such as the VDL Circumnavigation cruises have additional requirements specific to that cruise.

These include all Marine and Safety Tasmania requirements for non-commercial vessels operating in Tasmanian waters, and additional items determined by the Cruising Sub-Committee to be appropriate for these events.
