The Club always extends a special welcome to families and children. We have a strong junior sailing side and one of the founding objectives of the Club was “to encourage generally messing about in boats in a seamanlike manner” With this in mind, we ask parents to be aware of the inherent dangers of being near water, cliffs and a busy car park. What may be obvious to an adult could present an immediate danger to a child. We ask parents to be responsible for their children, to take warning signs seriously and ensure that lifejackets are worn as appropriate. That said, the river gives us all, both young and old, a tremendous playground right on our doorstep. . . . Enjoy it to the full.

Two weeks after a superb 46th May Cup raced by near 40 sailors spanning 70 years of age, we hope there will be a good wind to carry St Mawes under 18 Feva and Laser 4.7 youth to our fair river. And fair competition they will get from Jack Lawrence 1st in the 16-18 group, and Lily Butler, Tom & Sapphire, Freya Skingley at 1,2,3 in the 4.7 and Feva Class. Just behind Tom & Sapphire were Morwenna Richards, Lily Pope & Daisy Norton in the new club Fusion Class.

The 60th Helford to L’Aber Wrac’h Pursuit race saw the spirit of the race well and truly restored with 51 entries and 50 starters. 21 French and 30 UK yachts entered.

The first yachts crossed the start line at 11.30hrs, the last at 17.45hrs. They had a light breeze until the Manacles and then a good breeze until 21.00hrs when it disappeared until the Easterly filled in at 03.00 to 04.00 hrs in the morning. Those that went East caught the wind first.
