The Optimum Time Watches Southern Phantom travellers are heading to Devon next weekend for the Salcombe Brewery Phantom Open, Round 8 of the series. A large turnout is expected to join the six home boats for our first visit to Salcombe.

Many are due Friday to get settled in early and there is the possibility of a rib ride Saturday morning around the race area to familiarise visiting racers. Briefing is at 11.00 with the first start at 13.00 NOR on the club website.
