Fowey Open Meeting Hosted by RFYC & Fowey Gallants Sailing Club 

27th/28th June 2015 

An exciting new addition to the Yawl sailing calendar is an Open Meeting within the historic Cornish town of Fowey. The Fowey estuary home to the Troy One Designs provides an outstanding location for a change of scene with a four race series providing a mix of both estuary and bay sailing. Racing is scheduled to commence circa 10.30 on Saturday morning so it would be advisable to travel to the event on Friday evening. For those travelling from Salcombe the journey time is approx 1.5-1.75 hours approx 65 miles. Racing on Sunday is scheduled for completion 1.30 to 2.00 to enable lunch at a prize giving at the Royal Fowey Yacht Club.  Saturday evening there will be a barbecue hosted by the Fowey Gallants Sailing Club. For those of you who have not visited Fowey it is one of the most beautiful Cornish fishing towns on the South Coast which is very similar to but smaller than Salcombe

The sailing should offer all a fresh challenge,  whilst those within the shore party can watch from the veranda of the RFYC or wander through the quaint streets where there is a wide range of shops to suit all tastes. To make this a viable event we need at least 15 entries (13 approx already confirmed) so please commit early. There a number of parties who have confirmed they would like to attend but do not have a road trailer. So please can anyone who is not coming but has a serviceable and roadworthy trailer available please let either Andrew Wood or Andrew Stirling know so these can be matched. 

There are a number of road trailers at Stones boatyard so could the owners of these please confirm to Tristan if they are happy for their trailer to be used. Whilst in Fowey all yawls will be moored on pontoons so it is necessary to bring mooring ropes and adequate fenders as we will not be dry sailing. Launching will take place from CaffaQuay and trailer storage and parking has been arranged. So hopefully many of you will fancy a change of scene and will see this as the perfect spot for a long weekend of good sailing and convivial company. Entry Fee £90.00 including: Harbour Dues, 2  days Trailer storage/parking , 2 x barbecue tickets, rescue boats, mooring feesAccommodation Information: Note for the diary St Mawes June 2016. Any queries Contact  (woody) or Andrew Stirling
