Once again our friends at the Royal Torbay Yacht Club will be hosting our European Championships with sailing taking place in the fickle Tor Bay. Based on recent past experiences (we were here in 1997 and 2007) the sailing area will probably be in the north of the bay, hopefully avoiding the other fleets using the bay sailing from Brixham and Paignton. The English Riviera is the perfect venue for competitors and your families. For a taste of the non-sailing activities and attractions in the area follow this link: The English Riviera.
We have been advised that the Club will be open on Friday 15th August for early arrivals. More details to follow regarding boat and car parking, during and after the event.
