    Salcombe Yacht Club South West Water Pursuit Race

    It has become a tradition for Salcombe Yacht Club dinghy racers to compete in the South West Water Pursuit Race on the day of the annual prize giving supper.  The reality were south easterly gale force winds but with the race area at least partially protected by the hills of East Portlemouth, sufficiently so for Race Officer Julian Meek to consider that racing was still on.

    Salcombe Yacht Club Winter Series Race 5

    Race 5 of the Salcombe Yacht Clubs Winter series will not go down as a classic in the memory of either competitors or anyone unfortunate enough to be watching. Things began reasonably promisingly with a light north easterly breeze blowing over a flood tide. Race Officer Tim Fells deployed a temporary mark in Batson Creek hoping to give the fleets a reasonable windward leg up to the Yalton mark after the initial fetch from the

    SYC Winter Series Race 4

    The second race of the SYC winter series was sailed in pleasant conditions with a Northerly airstream and as usual, the Salcombe estuary provided challenging areas to navigate. This week it was the region approaching The Bag at Snapes point. There was a good entry of Solos to compete in their class race and the star studded handicap fleet had the interesting addition of Roger Tushingham making a welcome return to Salcombe sailing in an

    Salcombe Yacht Club Winter Series Race 3

     After the first two Saturdays were cancelled due to gales, the Winter Series at Salcombe Yacht Club finally got underway last weekend. Thunderous mid-morning rain cleared away to leave some watery sunshine and a moderate north westerly breeze. Those familiar with sailing in Salcombe will know that a north westerly is the most difficult of wind directions the wind may blow down the harbour from Batson but it may equally funnel in from the

    Salcombe Autumn Solo Open.  19th/20th October 2019 by: Graham Cranford Smith Photos: Margaret Mackley  The Autumn Tyler Trophy Solo open meeting made it into the class fixture list this year. Consequently, the attendance was improved over 2018.  Even so Salcombe is miles from anywhere (hence its attraction) and has a richly deserved reputation for being somewhat difficult. Happily, the net effect was that twenty-four specialist

  • Salcombe Yacht Club Autumn Series Race 7

    A dreich day greeted the more hardy sailors who turned out for the Salcombe Yacht Club Autumn Series Race 7.  Race officer John Wylie set the right course for a South South Westerly; Blackstone Gerston, Millbay, Crossways line, however with the race taking place on maximum spring flood tide it was to be most challenging. There were no takers for the Cadet Handicap race, so the Medium Handicap Fleet were first away, with the
