This year Marcita will be based on the Hamble with visits to a couple of West Country Regattas. The dates allow some weeks of cruising in the South West including Cornwall and Devon.

Marcita has been invited to take part in several Classic Yacht Events this year, including the bew BCYC Dartmouth Regatta, Falmouth Classics and the BCYC Cowes Week. From May to July, she has a packed programme which you can join by taking a berth or bareboat chartering her on a one way cruise on the South Coast.
Once she gets underway you can follow the progess on the Marcita on Tour Blog by clicking here. It's a continuation of last year's blog so you can get a taste of what to expect.
It's easy to get to her with very good train services which booked in advance can be very cheap.
Marcita has four berths but apart from Regatta weeks we generally have a crew of three leaving one berth free to stow gear
