    • Mallorca, Spain


    May 5-12, 2018

    CRSA is sponsoring a flotilla cruise at the island of Mallorca, Spain.  Mallorca is in the Mediterranean off the coast of Barcelona and Valencia. The marina is located at the capital city of Palma which has scheduled flights.  The flotilla is organized by Sunsail.

    A flotilla is a group (6-12) of chartered boats with a lead boat crewed by a Captain, Repair Technician and Social Director. We will sail independently, but meet up at a reserved mooring each night.  The Social Director plans group dinners and other shore events. For more information go to


    We have reserved a 47’ mono hull with 4 cabins, each with private head. The boat is a Premier category (1-3 years old) and is equipped with bow thruster, Lazyjack, electric toilets, air conditioning, towels and bedding.  We plan to have a maximum of 8 on the boat.

    If they are available, we can charter additional boats if needed.


    The estimated cost of the cruise is $675 per person, based on two per cabin and eight total crew.  If we do not fill the boat, the cost will increase.  In addition, there is a refundable damage deposit of $155 for a total of $830. Captains have first cabin pick followed by crew in order of receipt of the deposit check.  To reserve a cabin, a deposit of $830 per person is required.  Deposits may be refunded after 12/31/2017 if a substitute crew member can be found.


    A shared berth, mooring fees and utilities, Sunsail partial damage waiver


    Travel to Palma, on shore food and drinks.  A brief look at air fare showed a round trip from Lexington at $1600. Diligent shopping as well as flying from Cincinnati may result in a lower fare.  Crew members will contribute to a boat fund for on board food and supplies.

    It is recommended not to make nonrefundable air and hotel reservations until we are sure the trip is going.  A lack of interest or other problem could occur which would cancel the cruise.



    Payments due- Dec. 31, 2017, no refunds after that date

    Set Sail- May 6
