Approximately every other year, interested members of Monomoy Yacht Club cruise locations beyond Cape Cod. The goals for these trips are an opportunity for members to enjoy each other’s company and experience culture, food, drink, geography and history. Participants pay their own fees and upgrades are available. MYC member Sidney Harvey, a travel agent, manages the logistics with the tour companies.
For example, recent destinations have included sailing around Spain and Portugal, sailing around Rome, Sicily and Malta, and cruising around Cuba. Each of these trips had opportunities for very interesting shore excursions.
The trips avoid summer months during core season in Chatham and try to take weather considerations into account. We try to avoid the mega cruise ships, instead using sailboats, riverboats, and other small cruise ships.
