Salcombe RS Aero Open,
Salcombe, Devon 
10/11th September 2022
 
We look forward to visiting Salcombe's magical Devonshire venue and its beautiful yet challenging race course again for another enchanting weekend in 2022.
 
To combine the best features of the worlds most iconic sailing harbours - Sydney, San Fran and a dash of Sardinia's Porto Cervo shaken into the mix could produce Salcombe on the English Riviera! Funnelling breezes, awesome backdrops, challenging tides, a balmy micro climate - with the ever present potential for a mighty apres sail!

Championship courses on open water are one good test of racing skills. However, sailing on Salcombe's ria valley with the intrigue of tricky tides and swirling breezes under high headlands presents a whole new game of sailor cunning and intuition! The chances are that every one might get to lead at some point whilst we tide cheat along the shoreline, which all then fuels the bar talk later too! The beautiful backdrop and lovely town makes for a weekend to remember and we look forward to our return!
