    Yacht Race Thursday Series 1 Race 3 Under clear blue skies, Thursday evening yacht racing was finally able to get under way last week with 12 boats setting out for what would be the first event using split fleets and the return of IRC rated boats. However, weather conditions were deceptive, and the keen Easterly breeze had whipped up the bay somewhat, with some sizeable waves to contend with. Race Officer Terry Phillips chose

Despite the cold Monday evening, however, 9 boats ventured out for a final practice session, including two from Paignton Sailing Club. The wind was very light, shifting from North to South East, and it completely died by the end of the third lap. The Paignton

    "Freedom Race"

    With the Step 1 relaxation of the coronavirus restrictions allowing organised outdoor sporting activity to resume the "Freedom Race" was enthusiastically attended by 6 yachts braving the anticipated cold conditions in an attempt to conclude the curtailed winter racing series.

    Dinghies Re-start

    Conditions were very good for the first of the dinghy refresher sessions, with a decent breeze and cloudless skies, though in the shade it was a tad on the chilly side!

With the compound still hosting the yachts before crane-in, space was at
