    New Year's Day Ramble

    The New Decade started as we intend it to continue  A capacity crowd filled the Yacht Club and Cliff House to the brim for a memorable evening of feasting, frolicking and dancing culminating in bubbles on the terrace in a tolerably mild (if murky) midnight hour, made even more special by a fine display of fireworks from the beach opposite. Heads were clearly not too fuddled as everyone remembered where they

    Salcombe Yacht Club South West Water Pursuit Race

    It has become a tradition for Salcombe Yacht Club dinghy racers to compete in the South West Water Pursuit Race on the day of the annual prize giving supper.  The reality were south easterly gale force winds but with the race area at least partially protected by the hills of East Portlemouth, sufficiently so for Race Officer Julian Meek to consider that racing was still on.
