Blue Water Section Introduction

Welcome to the Blue Water section

This Section was formally set up in 2010 to support CA Members who had sailed away from Europe. As can be appreciated the Section covers a vast area of the world where members are experiencing at first hand changes to clearing in & out procedures, all manner of facilities, current local advice, beautiful anchorages etc. Join us so we can help you plan your dream: if you have already sailed your dream join to help other members enjoy theirs.

The Blue Water Area

Our members sail all over the world from crossing the Atlantic to Asia, Alaska, Australia and all other places in between.

Where we Meet

We have an annual lunchtime get together mid-August at CA House, London. Rendezvous/rallies are organised in various parts of the world and promulgated via our Newsletters and always make it a party whenever you spot a CA burgee.

Being Part of our Section

Will give you contact with others who have ‘been there-done that’ enabling you to access their first hand experiences. Sail in company with other members in your area (if you want to), use our world–wide discounts and get local help from our representatives abroad.
