Salcombe Gin RS Summer Regatta Party

We are hopeful that all limits on social contact will be removed on 21st June and have made plans for a celebratory dinner and party on Saturday 26th June, with food, music, wine and of course Salcombe Gin. We will publish menu choices and ticket information once the details for this can be confirmed.


The entry fee is £50 for single handers and £65 for double handers for boats entered by 25th May 2021.  There will be a £20 late fee for boats entered after that date.
No entries will be accepted at the event.
To enter this event, all sailors must be members of the RS Class Association, apart from crews whose helms have taken out the 'any crew' extension to their membership.  Join/renew here

Now that the NoR has been published, those who have completed pre-entry registration are being invited to confirm their entry by 31st March, by paying the entry fee and ensuring that they are RS Class Association members.

Entry numbers and waiting lists will be reviewed at the beginning of April, any places not confirmed with payment will be offered to those on the waiting list.

Overall and individual fleet numbers will be limited due to the room on the pier (more so if extra distancing is required between boats). 

Fleet allocations:

RS100 11 boats
RS200 21 boats
RS300 8 boats
RS400 27 boats
RS500 10 boats
RS600 5 boats
RS700 16 boats
RS800 15 boats
RS Vareo 5 boats

If the limit for your fleet is reached, please enter to go on the waiting list - some boats may drop out when payment is requested and if we see a big demand we willl look again to see what we can do to accomodate extra boats (e.g., reviewing berth spacing requirements, potentially having boats from the waiitng list sail from Paignton etc.).

Further Information
RTYC event website, with event documents, and useful information incluing getting to RTYC, car parking, weather and tides, local services, club information and accommodation suggestions.
Of course, we don't know yet what restrictions will be in place, so we can't at this stage confirm the precise arrangements and would advise booking accomodation (with a no cost cancellation policy) close to the club in case the club changing faciltiies are not in use, or looking on the bright side, so that you can easily walk home after the fantastic RS Summer Regatta party! 
Roll on June!
