Is there a perfect sailing venue for a week's Championships? Torbay boasts some of the finest sailing waters in Europe and if you have not sailed here before you will not be disappointed. Torquay is a great place to be during August with a host of attractions and places to visit for families, a buzzing night life and wide range of restaurants and accommodation.

The club has a handsome bar and first-class catering facilities and that you enjoy the social side as much as the racing. The club bar will be open daily from midday offering a wide range of beers, lagers, ciders, wines, spirits, and cocktails.

The clubhouse is situated close to the harbour with panoramic views of Torbay from both the main bar and the terraced garden. The garden is an ideal place to meet for a relaxing drink in the evening sun or for friends and families to watch the excitement of the days racing.

There's also a busy training and social programme organised by the Class Association.
