RNLI YACHT AND DINGHY PASSAGE RACE
PLYMOUTH SOUND TO THE RIVER YEALM
It runs from Jennycliff to the Yealm and, having competed a number of times over the year, I can say it is informal and great fun with a warm welcome for everyone in the Yealm. Special safety boat cover is a feature of the dinghy part of the event.
Perhaps some CYC boats might like to make a weekend of it?
Sadly, it is likely to be quite a while before it would be wise for members to gather upstairs as it is quite an enclosed space.
A "Grand Reopening" is planned when COVID-19 restrictions are behind us. However, a virtual tour should be available before then.
• The Challenge generally follows the well tried format of previous years but has been adapted to comply with government guidelines for staying safe with Covid 19, and to facilitate safe management of the Challenge by “remote control”. Courses have been allocated in advance.
• For remote control safety management reasons, yachts now are to check in when starting and check out when finished or retired.
• A WhatsApp White Sail Group has been set up to report elapsed times and publish results; SMS text
will remain as the fall-back
