There was an excellent turnout for the RS 100/200/400 open meeting at Starcross Yacht Club on Saturday, 30th September with more than 35 boats from the South West racing. For images, click here.

An overview from Keith Wheatley (RS400, s/n 910) is below:

After a disappointing turnout for the Laser Open earlier in the month, Starcoss was delighted to welcome a big turnout of visiting boats for the RS Open on September 30. With a steady 10 knots southerly, Race Officer Russ Gibbs decided to lay a course well down the estuary off Starcross village. As the afternoon wore on the wind freshened and went into the west and the windward mark for the second two races ended up near the railway station.

Lasers at SYC

The 2015 Laser Open was sailed at SYC on the 8th August in near perfect conditions (when the sea breeze turned up).

Here's some photos from the event. They are not very good photos but, then again, I am not a very good photographer! I think the photos get better as you scroll through (and as the wind got up).

Merlin Rocket Silver Tiller

SYC was host to home and visiting Merlin Rocket sailors on the weekend of 20/21 May. Mixed weather on the Saturday gave way to glorious sunshine and steady winds on the Sunday, bringing the five-race programme to a most satisfying conclusion. Thanks to all the members who worked behind the scenes to make this happen, and especially to the galley team for their excellent catering.

Photos are here.

This meeting is part of a series - next up is Brightlingsea SC, in early June.

This year's Laser Open Meeting has been integrated into the River Exe Regatta.

The Regatta is being held over the weekend of the 16th and 17th July and promises to be a fantastic event with numerous classes of boat out on the water sailing a variety of courses.

The Laser Open Meeting itself takes place on Saturday the 16th July.
