    SYC Spring Series, Race 4

    Handicap Race -  With light E-NE winds and a spring low tide to contend with it wasnt looking overly inviting for the sailors of SYC on Saturday.  The course 7-X-3-X with X being laid between the Watch House and Mark 2. That being said, it was fantastic to see a bumper turn out of 13 boats in the handicap fleet with a couple of new additions as well as

    The Commissioning Race marks the start of the SYC 2022 dinghy racing season.

    This Saturday welcomed seventeen boats and their crew to the start line for the 2022 Commissioning Race. Sailors were greeted with a brisk north-easterly and a spring low tide which limited the Race Officer, Barney Greenhill's, course selection. Barney opted for an initial beat to Mark 3 then onwards for a blast to Gerston and back before looping around Crossways, followed by a short lap in front of the Club. Two

    The beautiful Salcombe Yawl; History, Open Meetings and Events. . .

    The Salcombe Yawl has a history which goes back at least 200 years to the straight-stemmed, transom-sterned, yawl rigged local fishing vessels of the late 18th-early 19th century.  By 1823, it is clear that the yawl-rigged fishing-boat had become established as a common type on the South Devon coast. By 1853, when the earliest painting, now in the Salcombe Yacht Club, was made, the Yawl is clearly visible as

    It was unusually mild for the first day of 2022 (Happy New Year!) and the last race of the Festive Series with a fresh south westerly breeze on hand to deal with any lingering New Year hang-overs that may or may-not have been present. Chris Chubby Cleaves was OOD and he opted to keep the fleet in the main stretch of the harbour. The course 1-3-1-3-2-3 with all the windward marks to
