  • 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

    Lark Open Regatta

    After Saturday’s Lark Masters event, the stalwarts returned to the fray for the Open Meeting on Sunday 6 th October.  Three races were planned, which caused some trepidation for the more senior sailors! With glorious sunshine and strong winds forecast an exciting day was anticipated. However, once reaching the start line in the estuary it became evident that the swirling Salcombe winds were in play.  The OOD sensibly set the course away from

    Salcombe Yacht Club Autumn Series Race 5

    With winds forecast up to 30 knots earlier in the week it looked like racing might be cancelled in advance, however the reality on the day was a 15 to 25 knot West South Westerly weather window and a building flood tide, which allowed Nigel Blazeby the Race Officer to set the traditional Blackstone Gerston Blackstone Crossways course. Junior training had been cancelled due to high winds in the morning, so there were no

    Salcombe Yacht Club Autumn Series Race 4

    The wind direction at the start of racing on Saturday presented a conundrum for Race Officer Andy Postle and his team. Easterly with a touch of south in it meant that although there was plenty of breeze out at sea, in the Harbour on the Club start line conditions were very light and variable. One moment there would be a gust coming down from Yalton but the next would see the wind puffing in from

    Salcombe Yacht Club Autumn Series Race 3

    Summertime conditions prevailed for Race 3 of the Salcombe Yacht Club’s Autumn Series. Sunny skies and a 10 knot north-easterly brought over 40 boats to the start line across five different fleets. A low water spring tide shortly before the start restricted the Race Officer’s course options and he chose to send competitors north around Crossways and then through the Bag to do a couple of laps around Gerston and Saltstone before returning to the
