Too windy for us on the Saturday, with survival conditions of 28 knt. Happier on the Sunday with a great sail with 10 to 15. Shame the asymmetric's didn't have a windward leeward course, as out performed on the triangles.


Thanks Paignton Sailing Club ☺️ for all your hard work to put the event on!


See you next season ...

Jack Sailing's sailing club database has achieved its goals & surpassed all expectations. To build on this success, and to get more new sailors into our clubs and onto the water, we are developing a new website application called sailquest.net.


sailquest.net is a very powerful resource tool, that simply links sailing club events to boat owners, but most importantly to inform crew that free spaces are available on boats.


sailquest.net - finds new members, finds new crew, and gets new sailors on the wat!


Sailing is a very important part of our lives. Sailing is a full body workout and it's great to be part of the sailing community. We love sailing and want more people to be able to get on the water and enjoy this fantastic pastime.

In 2004 a good sailing friend, Mickey Schwartz bought the local yacht rigging company Bay Rigging. Mickey knew my passion was sailing, I was at a loose end, so he took me on as trainee yacht rigger. Bay Rigging trades from Dartside Quay on the river Dart in Galmpton and services all the local marina’s including Noss, Dartmouth, Brixham and Torquay.


Mickey, a South African, grew up working with boats. His first business at the age 15 was called ‘Barnacle Busters’. There, in the warm waters of Durban, he would dive under boats and scrape the barnacles of the bottom. To date Mickey has over 250,000 sea miles under his belt, most of which were racing miles. His knowledge of yachts and yacht racing is extensive.
