Cruising Association Videos

Members of the Cruising Association have been generously giving their time to produce and present presentations on specialist cruising subjects for us to share more widely.

We hope you will enjoy this selection of bite-sized excerpts from our members’ online offerings and, when you decide to join the CA, you can revisit the pages and benefit from the full video and audio experience.

So sit back, relax and let’s get underway!


Our video offering ranges from a riveting and inspirational hour-long documentary about our Patron Sir Robin Knox-Johnston to a range of fascinating introductions to different cruising grounds from our 2020 webinar recordings, a variety of how to videos including several on outboard servicing plus others covering on technical topics such as AIS and Radar, technology afloat and OpenCPN.
