Henri Lloyd Salcombe Yacht Club Regatta - Overall

by John Murrell on 11 Aug 2010 1-5 August 2010

Days 4, 5 & 6

Wednesday dawned a blusterly south westerly and the morning fleets were treated to a race course set from the SYC start line out to 2 marks in the bay followed by a quick trip to Kingsbridge. The conditions tested the skills of the crews and the strengths of the boats with the majority coming through admirably, the afternoon fleets again enjoyed the same breeze although they raced in the Estuary they had the best of the wind blasting through the Bag and Widegates. The weather cleared for the traditional Regatta party in the Yacht Club and we were treated to an air display by a Sea King SAR helicopter who with both the Salcombe Inshore and All Weather Tamar class Lifeboats wowed the assembled crowd with their skills in picking up casualties from the water and then transferring them back and forth between the helicopter and lifeboats.

Thursday saw lighter winds with testing racing in the Estuary, however the breeze came back for Friday and the competitors finished the week wet, exhausted but happy.

The winner of the Henri Lloyd Trophy for the most successful boat in the Regatta was Paul Ellis, fresh from his success in winning the Solo Nations Cup at St Pierre de Quiberon in Brittany, who dominated all six races in the 41 strong Solo fleet.
