Whether you are a member or not, whether you race or not, you will still be welcome back to the quay on a Tuesday evening for one of our excellent hot suppers washed down with a pint or two of Betty Stogs, or on a Saturday for tea and cake.
The Pursuit Series have their own start times which are published a few weeks before the series begins.
As part of the Club's Centenary celebrations there will be a short series of races for IRC rated boats: on Sunday 23rd May and Sunday 27th June racing will consist of Bay Racing with two windward/leeward courses and a regatta course, and on Sunday 30th May a single offshore race. The NoR is here.
Windward/Leeward Racing will take place in Falmouth Bay or in adverse weather conditions may be held in the Carrick Roads. The offshore race will take place off the South Cornish Coast.
