This year’s race got off in fine style on Saturday following a 24 hour postponement due to poor weather conditions. The delay meant the loss of some entrants owing to work commitments but on the day 16 boats started. The French contingent made the running but that old campaigner, Wally Royall (in his 90th year) was the first Helford boat to cross the line – congratulations Wally!
I’ve taken over as Captain Yachts this year. My aim for the next three years is to:
Make yachting as easy and enjoyable as possible for all
Introduce more dinghy sailors and social members to yacht racing
Entice more boats onto the water and boost racing on Wednesday nights
Help sociable sailors to communicate and cruise in company
