The Cruising Association and the Woolverstone Project have got together to organise the one-day event - We Do Mean To Go To Sea - for cruising sailors as a fund raiser for the disabled sailing charity 'The Woolverstone Project', otherwise known as the East Anglican Sailing for Disabilities Trust, based at the Alton Water Sports Centre in Stutton, Suffolk.

The conference will offer attendees a chance to explore a diverse range of cruising destinations, hear entertaining speakers and come away with new skills. From now until February 11 there’s a discount on the ticket price at £35 for a single or £60 for two. The ticket price includes a full lunch and snacks and refreshments.

Well-known sailors including TV presenter and yachtsman Paul Heiney, Dave Selby and Hannah Stodel will offer talks and there will be a series of 45-minute workshops on cruising information and skills, boat preparation and maintenance, how to organise affairs back home for long term absence and information on a range of popular destinations - all presented by people with first-hand experience. There are over 30 different sessions ensuring that there is something for everyone, whatever their sailing interests.
