Annual Yacht Regatta

Friday 22nd June to 24th June 2018

Tamar River Sailing Club Yacht Regatta 2018

The latest annual Tamar River Sailing Club Regatta was a fantastic success. The weekend of 22nd to 24th of June 2018 brought us fair weather and just about sufficient winds which were enjoyed fully by the competitors. With a class for novice helm and others for white sail experienced racers (Cruisers and J24s) a total of eleven yachts entered the races held on the River Tamar. Most were from the TRSC but others came from Saltash and other local clubs. Off the water; on Friday night, the local delights of Pasties and Cream Teas ran out all too quickly. Luckily, the weather was brilliant for the BBQ on Saturday which was punctuated by the dancing of a bunch of sailors who should have been too tired to stay up so late.

Peter Preston and Breakthrough was overall winner of the Cruisers Class

Alan Lang and Him & Me was the overall winner of the White Sail Class

Ben Maddaford  and Jammin was the overall winner of the J24 Class                                        

The attached photographs show how much Force 4 featured in our prize giving and others might give you a flavour of the excitement. The real entertainment, particularly enjoyed by the spectators, was a series of ‘heat of the moment’ incidents that are not included so as to protect the innocent.

A great time was had by all. Thanks to all who came, raced or helped in any way. Huge thanks also to our sponsors particularly Force 4 (Plymouth) for their support and sponsorship.
