Flotilla Cruise: A flotilla (from Spanish, meaning a small flota) of ships. For SNSYC let’s just say a small fleet of vessels, or yachts, that set sail together on the same route travelling from location to location. SNSYC cruises  are as short as a week or as long as a month.

Rendezvous: A meeting at a single appointed place and time. For SNSYC a meeting place is set, often a marina or marine park, and cruisers agree to meet there. Generally participants do not move during the weekend. The rendezvous includes activities, contests, and social gatherings.

Information on upcoming cruises can be found on the  Event Calendar
