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 ...

We feel very lucky to be able to sail in Torbay. Torbay is a beautiful place to sail, its waters are protected on three sides, and we generally have flat waters to race on. Torbay’s prevailing winds are south westerlies but, as a bonus, we’re also able to get out and sail on big rolling easterlies to practise our surfing! We have really easy access to the water with a convenient protected slipway, passage to the open sea, and we have fresh water to wash our boats off after racing.

We currently have RS400 and RS200 dinghies racing at the Royal Torbay Yacht Club. The RS200 dinghy fleet is growing and the club has decided that the RS200 is the best natural progressive dinghy for the RS Feva class, and for cadet juniors to move up from. With the R.T.Y.C’s very strong junior dinghy fleet, its future is looking very rosy!

In addition to the RS400 and the RS200 dinghies, we also have a wonderful array of sailing craft that regularly join in and partake in PY Dinghy racing, which we all actively encourage.

If your already a sailor or would like to give sailing a go, just pop down to Torquay harbour and say hello.

Sailing is a fantastic sport, and Torbay is a fantastic place to sail!
