Cruising Notes

The RCCPF Cruising Information Database contains a wealth of invaluable cruising information gathered from around the world from generous-minded yachtsmen and women.

It also includes cruising information contributed by members of clubs with whom the RCCPF shares information, namely the Royal Cruising Club and Ocean Cruising Club.

You can search for the following in the database:

  • RCCPF Publications and Supplements/Corrections - information about the publications we produce relating to a specific area.

  • Cruising Notices - information contributed by the public and members of like minded organisations with whom we share information.

  • RCC Members Logs - Many of the logs provide extremely valuable pilotage and general information about the areas visited as well as being a very good read..

  • Weather Information - an extensive directory of sources of weather information compiled by our authors.

Searching the database could not be easier.

Simply enter the name of a place or region in the search box, click the Search button and start exploring.

Please note that searches will work best if you enter the name of a specific place, rather than a general region. If you want to search for notices in a region we would recommend picking a place close to the center of the region and then expanding the radius of search to encompass the entire region.

If you wish you can filter the types of information that are returned in the search results, and adjust the radius of search from your entered place by clicking on the search Search Options button.
