Cargreen Yacht Club Cruising Regatta
Saturday 16th September 2017

Winds were mainly light NW but with many holes and lots of large directional variations in the wind in various stretches of the river. Boats were arriving at Cargreen on a wide variety of points of sailing; some hard on the wind, others reaching and a good number under spinnaker. A torrential rain shower soaked many competitors in the early stages of the regatta, but Cargreen escaped rain throughout the barbecue.

2017 Regatta statistics:

47 entries
2 did not start
7 retired, of which 4 motored to Cargreen, the other 3 went home directly.
36 finished
1 additional yacht visited and came ashore for the bar & barbecue!

7 CYC boats took part, the most successful being Robert Stebbing in his International Canoe who came 2nd in the White Sail Division.

Lots of nice comments about the regatta, about the racing, water taxis, bar, barbecue, and the live music from Cornish Jam. Including one from a senior member of a Royal club who said “ this is what a sailing club regatta really needs to be like” and from another very competitive sailor mentioned “Cargreen regatta attracted more cruiser entries than any other regatta in the port and more than Dartmouth and Fowey regattas – for good reasons; it has unusual challenges, it is competitive, fun and has a great reception at the finish”.

The White Sail Division, with boats starting “in their own time” and sailing under international collision rules, proved increasingly popular with 22 boats entered.
