All races will start using the Yacht Club line, which is clearly marked on each side of the estuary by shore transits. As in previous years, the start is:
- 2 minutes ~ Flag up with sound signal
- 1 minute ~ Sound signal
- Start ~ Flag dropped and sound signal
Starts will be videoed and any gig over the line on the start will automatically be disqualified. Fair starts make for fair racing!
When arriving in Salcombe please follow the signs for the Shadycombe boatpark area if you are towing, and if you are a competitor or supporter park in one of the town car parks. Walk through the town to the Cliff House Gardens below the Yacht Club. There is no parking near the Yacht Club. Gigs need to be rowed down the estuary to the pontoons that will be put out beneath the Yacht Club. Refreshments will be available in Cliff House Gardens and the Yacht Club is open throughout the day. No alcohol in Cliff House Gardens please! Please return any Salcombe Trophies from last year.
