We are delighted that the title sponsor will be Salcombe Gin, founded by dinghy sailors inspired by the coastal vitality of Salcombe. We have many shared values and have been building a relationship over the past 3 years.  The sponsorship will, of course, include the chance to win Salcombe Gin on and off the water, but if you can't wait that long take a look at their online shop here. Did you know they also make Salcombe Rum?!

Charity Partner
