Weymouth and Portland Cruising Association

Welcome aboard!

WPCA is a friendly and informal sailing and motor boat club for those who enjoy cruising or just messing about in boats. Racing doesn't normally feature in our activities.

Throughout the year we meet almost every Tuesday from 7.30pm onwards at Castle Cove Sailing Club overlooking Portland Harbour.

As you can see from the programme we have an extensive summer cruising programme; and in the winter, a programme of talks, visits, and social events. Our membership is very broadly based from those with little experience to seasoned sailors with thousands of sea miles under their belts. We also have a number of moorings in Portland Harbour available to members.

You can follow our members' adventures on our Cruising Blog. The latest postings are below.

Surreal moment in Lulworth Cove. We were enjoying a sundowner on Dark Star when around the point sailed this Wayfarer dinghy. These two guys are completing a sail around Britain today at Castle Cove.
