Another busy week at Babbacombe! Many congratulations to Neil, Mark and Peter for completing their Powerboat PB2 with us this week. Perfect sea conditions enabling their navigation and passage exercise all the way round to Torquay Marina! Lucky for some. Nice pic in the Gallery.
Friday also marked the start of this summers RYA OnBoard sessions. Five sailors turned out in rainy conditions with many more juniors set to join us over the coming weeks.
Saturday 12th was the last of our RYA Push The Boat Out events which saw many enthusiastic guests go out for a taster session. Light winds did not stop the fun with many juniors and adults looking to sail more with the club. Thank you to all the volunteers who have helped make this event such an enjoyable one.
