    Sharps Doom Bar Salcombe Merlin Week – Day 4

    Wednesday dawned to another day of wall to wall sunshine and a surprisingly early established sea breeze cell which extended seaward to Starehole Bay and well up the harbour.  While only a F1-2 it gave the promise of some more consistent conditions. Blue v Black flights.  Course M,Z,1,3 PRO Dave Greening made a ballsy decision to send the fleet to sea in what was to prove a fair beat of nearly

    Sharps Doom Bar Salcombe Merlin Week – Day 3

    Competitors awoke on Tuesday morning to a new sound, the rustle of wind in trees.  After two days of gradient versus sea breeze, there was an expectation of racing without the dreaded transition zones.  The wind was into the ENE and up to a force 3-4. Blue v Green flights.  Course 3,7,1,5,1 The morning race brought together a number of the front runners including leaders Chris Gould and Chris Kilsby

    Sharps Doom Bar Salcombe Merlin Week – Day 2

    Another clear blue sky and an encouragingly healthy northeaster greeted the many sore heads after a big night in the club with Nick the Fish belting out the tunes. Red v Blue flights.  Course 3,M.3 With reasonable pressure all the way up to Crossways, the fleet lined up early hoping to hold position.  However, the start of the weather going flood caught out five boats including Nick Charles

    Salcombe Yacht Club Summer Series - Race 5 - 07 July 2018

    On a glorious sunny Saturday and at the top of the tide the summer series club racing took place with the backdrop of 120 Merlin Rockets arriving at Salcombe for their Merlin Week that starts on the Sunday. The race officer was faced with a pleasant sea breeze blowing down the estuary and unknown to him and the fleet at the time an Easterly land breeze was lurking in the direction of Kingsbridge. The first

    Sharps Doom Bar Salcombe Merlin Week – Day 1

    So, the long wait for the 61 st running of the legendary Salcombe Merlin Week is over and racing has commenced.  Saturday provided a foretaste of what is to come with a day spent rigging, meeting old chums and moving boats over to Mill bay accompanied by wall to wall sunshine, an asthmatic northeaster in the morning being replaced by a tremulous sea breeze in the harbour for the afternoon. Red v Greed

    Salcombe Yacht Club - Summer Series Race 3 - 23 June 2018

    On a beautiful sunny day in Salcombe the prevailing easterly wind combined with a somewhat half-hearted sea breeze to produce a light south easterly for the forty plus boats competing in the third race of Salcombe Yacht Club’s Summer Series. This wind direction is a difficult one for the Race Officer and competitors alike – the wind blowing across the Estuary limits the opportunities to set a true windward leg whilst there were plenty of

    Salcombe Yacht Club Summer Series Race 2 - 16th June 2018

    A very blustery Westerly wind made sailing both exciting but challenging as reduced fleet numbers defied the weather forecast and had fantastic blue-sky racing. Race Officer Clive Jacobs took the fleets on a first beat to Blackstone and followed this with an at times hair raising run to the distant Gerston mark which at the bottom of a Spring tide was just about negotiable with raised centreboards.  The wind gusts varied at times from 30
