We are having another Salcombe Yawl Racing weekend 6/7 October 2023

Yawls are 16’ clinker dinghies with mizzen mast (similar to a Cornish Crabber but faster)

The Owners loan the yawls but usually accompany them, so them format is 1 Owner and 2-3 BESA members per yawl and then team/companies host the owner plus 1 for Saturday Night dinner).

It’s a fun fund raiser for the Lifeboat (its your boat so support it) and the lifeboat crew will take part in racing and everyone can tour the boat and the Station (which was donated by Eric Newman a previous Chairman).

There may be a chance to go out on the Lifeboat on Sunday(subject to operational demands.)
