About the event
Boarding will take place from 17:00 at the quayside at Long Marsh in Totnes. There is a pretty 25 minute riverside walk from the mainline station to the quayside or it is a short taxi ride. Long term parking available Immediately next to the quay. Following your safety briefing we will be serving dinner on board and there is time to get to know your fellow guests.
We will set off down the meandering River Dart at 10:00, giving us plenty of time to reach the sea and do some sailing practice as we head north around Berry Head into Torbay aiming to get into Brixham to berth on the Heritage Pontoon by 17:00 in time to head up to the Yacht Club for a regatta get together and fish supper.
The following morning we will pick up additional guests and take part in the Parade of Sail off the breakwater followed by joining the Class 1 race if our practicing went well the day before! This is fairly relaxed sailing, managed to avoid close quarters racing. If not partaking we will spectate from a safe distance a great chance to see the local Brixham trawlers and other traditional boats being put through their paces. Then back to the pontoon and up to the yacht club for dinner and the prize giving.
After the excitement of the Regatta we will change down a gear, leaving Brixham at around 10:00 for a gentle sail back around the coast to the Dart and up the river to arrive back at Totnes at 15:00 on the top of the tide. We ask that you disembark promptly to give us time to get back down the river before it dries!
Owners Cabin for 2 people, full board.
