For the first ramble of the season we were joined by six other members and three dogs for a scenic walk around the Charletons. Following routes we had discovered during lockdown we headed inland from Springfield along green lanes to Bowcombe, following the estuary to what is cited as one of the ten best views in Devon, although unfortunately the tide was out! Our route then took us up to West Charleton Beacon before dropping

We are shocked and saddened to hear that Charlie Lloyd has passed away after a cardiac arrest whilst cycling with good friends.

The young sailors all equipped themselves really well for three challenging races in a freshening breeze.

Thanks to everyone who is making this Race Week happen. Race Officers are often faced with difficult decisions to get the fleets underway; but this is day two and Malcom Mackley is happy the breeze appears to be holding! There is great social distanced viewing from the SYC Terrace. Our view of the start and finish line, has to be one of the finest sights in Salcombe. Enjoy!
