SAMM Cruising Group’s autumn lunch

SAMM Cruising Group’s autumn lunch
Iglesia del Pilar de la Horadada

TWENTY TWO members of the SAMM Cruising and Independent Group enjoyed the social side to their activities recently at their autumn lunch get together.  This year it was held at Asador Los Naranjos in Pilar de la Horadada and organised by group co-ordinator Heather Bell.

What, you may ask, is the Cruising and Independent Group? It’s a section within SAMM, the Sailing Association Mar Menor, comprising the owners of larger yachts and power boats who offer opportunities to other SAMM members to get out onto the water as their crew and those SAMM members who are not in one of the various boat-share groups.

The larger boats vary in size from 10 to 12 meters and are moored in various marinas along the Costa Calida. In addition to regular day sails in their local vicinity, group boats also often go on longer trips along the Spanish coast or to the Balearic Islands, either singly or in company with other boats in the group as each owner’s time permits.

Non-sailors are welcome as crew and are encouraged to help manage the boat and take the helm to enhance their experience but, if they just want to chill out as passengers that’s OK too.

Everybody can also enjoy the many activities organised by the SAMM social committee throughout the year such as Christmas and Valentine’s Day dinner dances, the three-day Spring Bash at a local hotel, walks and bike rides.
