The Tide - out, then out some more.  The Wind - rubbish, then great, then rubbish again..! The Race - Just for fun. Handicap Race - by John Burn In typical North Westerly fashion, nailing the

  • Racing this weekend December 4th/5th

    The weather forecast for Saturday looks pretty grim but Sunday's forecast is much better. As a result we are going to postpone racing by 24 hours once again. Racing will take place on Sunday 5th December at 11.00 for the Handicap fleet and 11.10 for the Solo fleet. For the sake of fairness to all competitors (some of whom may not be able to make it on Sunday) Sunday's races will not count as part

    South West Pursuit Race

    With Storm Arwen barrelling through the South West on Saturday and the forecast predicating strong winds gusting up to 50mph it was decided to postpone the annual South West Water pursuit race by 24 hours.  What a difference a day makes, conditions on Sunday morning initially had the estuary resembling a mirror, not a breath of wind but on the plus side at least the wind chill wasnt so bad.  For

    Salcombe Yacht Club 2021 Winter Series, Race 4

    Handicap  - The sailors were in for yet another light wind affair and subsequently this led to a much lower turn out.  The Course 3-2-3-2-3-2. The fleet all opted for a town side start except Amy Cleaves in an Aero 7 who decided the Portlemouth shore was the place to be. Initially it looked promising but unfortunately for her it did not pay off and the rest of the fleet

    We've updated the bar!

    Our Bar Manager, Ben, has been a busy bee decorating and sprucing up the bar. Ok, admittedly, there's only a few subtle changes but it has made a huge difference to the overall look of the bar area.  A newly painted bar and wall, new beer pumps, carpet cleaning and a few additional plants has transformed the Clubhouse in time for the busy Christmas season.

    Family Night with End of Season Cadet Prize-giving.

    Friday night was the annual cadet party and prize-giving with bingo and a contemporary close-up magician. The night saw a successful turnout with over 55 attending for a fun filled evening with food, bingo and magical entertainment.  The night started off with three games of bingo, surprisingly it was the adults who struggled with the concept of the game, not the Cadets, which was subsequently dominated by the Turns family who walked

    Salcombe Yacht Club 2021 Winter Series, Race 3

    The forecast wasn't looking great for the 3rd race in the Winter Series and unfortunately, it wasn't wrong. A light north-westerly meant, as usual, the little wind that there was had a complete mind of its own. Racing was very tricky and tested the skill set of the competing Sailors. That being said, there was a bumper turnout for the handicap fleet which saw 17 boats take on the challenging conditions, only one less

    Salcombe Yacht Club 2021 Winter Series, Race 2.

    A strong ebb tide, the wind, again, predominantly from the west and some pretty punchy gusts ripping down the estuary made for some exciting racing.  Tim Fells was OOD and set a course of 1, 7, 1, 3, all to port for both Handicap and Solo fleets. Handicap  Race: -  Capsizing was order of the day for some and gear failure for others, notably Simon Ballantine
