Saturday: Free Sailing, Kayaks and Barbecue

Starcross was at its best this weekend with fantastic free sailing, trying a kayak out and a barbecue.

Great organising by Eleanor Thomas (Kayak Fleet Captain) and Tim Laws resulted in over 45 people trying out a kayak or surfski.

   Conditions were ideal and there were plenty of sailors on the water as well enjoying the reassurance of safety cover.  

 


Sunday: RNLI Pursuit Race  

On Sunday we had the annual pursuit race, raising funds for the RNLI. Click here for a gallery of photos.

In challenging but champagne conditions the race was won by Dave Lee and Tim Laws sailing a Merlin Rocket.

 

 

Monday: Tideway Cruise

  Monday saw a visit from a group of local Tideway sailors who, teaming up with ours, made a neat little fleet of eight. In a good wind the fleet explored the Exe Estuary, finishing with a cream tea. Thanks to Pat Thomson for organising the event.
