    Kath Stone

    It is with much sadness that we notify members of the passing of Kath Stone. Kath was a part of the sailing scene in Salcombe for many years; racing with her husband Alec, helping Shirley run cadets as well as being a partner with Alec in their boatbuilding business J. Stone and Son. A wonderfully warm and friendly personality with a ready smile and a good sense of humour, she will be greatly missed. She

    With the title still not decided, competitors were welcomed by more breeze than had been forecast, again from the South-West giving very enjoyable sailing conditions. RACE 11: RED v BLACK Flights, COURSE 1,3,1,7 After the first General Recall of the week, the fleet were clean away with tide under them.  Tim Fells, sailing with Sandy Ramus after Fran Gifford had sustained a beach games injury, played the shifts up the middle

    Wednesday evening saw a lovely celebration of Spud Rowsells life with humorous recollections from Alan Warren, Barry Dunning, Jon Turner, Keith Callaghan, Pat Blake and Scotty. A life well lived. RACE 9: GREEN v BLACK Flights, COURSE 2,7,2,3,2,3 Thursday dawned with a light North-westerly that was struggling to find its way down to the start line.  As if on queue a South-westerly found its way down the harbour to arrive

    Following the excitement of Tuesdays racing, conditions for Wednesday were close to perfect. A force 3-4 South-westerly was blowing up the harbour with enough shifts and gusts to make for interesting racing. RACE 7: BLUE v BLACK Flights, COURSE 1,3,1,7,1,3 With the last of the ebb tide flowing the fleet lined up with a few boats getting high and early to fall foul of the black flag.  None of the leading

    All eyes had been on the forecast for Tuesday since the start of the week and it did not disappoint.  The storm had passed through overnight and by the morning the sun was out and the wind was ripping down through the harbour with some vicious gusts. Conditions were sailable but managing the gusts and finding the right opportunity to gybe were going to be key to success. RACE 5: GREEN v BLUE Flights,

    In contrast to the first morning rain, competitors at Salcombe Gin Merlin Rocket Week were greeted by a morning of sunshine though precious little wind. RACE 3: RED v BLUE Flights, COURSE 1,3,1,3 With the start of the flood tide holding the fleet back and what little wind there was seeming to be on the Portlemouth shore, most of the fleet favoured that end of the line. However, it was those

    Two years have passed since the Merlin fleet last descended on Salcombe for the Salcombe Gin sponsored Merlin Week, so it was with much excitement that the morning fleet set about the ritual of crossing the estuary to Mill Bay to prepare for the morning race. Unfortunately, the weather gods were not in the same mood and delivered rain and little to no wind for the start. RACE 1: RED v GREEN Flights, COURSE

    Salcombe Yacht Club Summer Series Race 1

    Saturday 26 th June saw the kick off of the Salcombe Yacht Club Summer Series, with a light East South Easterly breeze over a low flood tide.  Race Officer Malcolm Mackley set a course seeking to maximise windward opportunities, to Crossways then to O positioned off Lambery Point, followed by an X mark off the Ferry Inn, followed by a short loop of the harbour. In the fast Handicap Fleet, Graham and

    Spud Rowsell

    From Jonathan Britton Salcombe Yawl Owners Association  It is with great sadness that I have to tell you that Spud Rowsell passed away earlier today after a long illness.   Those of us fortunate to have known Spud will know that he was an outstanding sailor and highly skilled boat builder. He won the prestigious Merlin Rocket National Championships twice in the 1970s in boats built by him and designed by his long
