The Hampton Yacht Club Casual Cruisers is an informal group of cruising enthusiasts.  We host a variety of cruises throughout the year, from simple weekend cruises within a day’s sail of the club, as well as longer cruises throughout the bay, and have included locations as far North as Havre de Grasse, Baltimore, Annapolis, or St. Michaels. Our destinations are only limited by our own imagination. Locations can be at any of a multitude of gorgeous anchorages, Marinas, or other Yacht Clubs, in towns with great restaurants, museums, and lots of other activities.

Planning begins in the early spring at the Cruise Planning GAM at the club. Additional cruises are often added throughout the season. The schedule  and cruise information is here on this site and published in our monthly newsletter, the “Mainsheet”.  To receive our up-to-date Cruising e-mails please contact Kelly Freeman at and ask to be added to the mailing group.


Whether you spend your time on a sailboat or powerboat, any age boater can become a member of the Casual Cruisers.

How do I join?

All that is required is to be an HYC member and have a desire to join other boating enthusiasts. All are welcome.

You can find Sergio Diehl, the HYC Casual Cruiser Fleet Captain,  onboard Modus Vivendi on “F” Dock. Or you can call Sergio at (757) 635-1846 or e-mail at
