Back in June, two members of the RTP team took part in the Savills 2014 Sailing Regatta which was hosted at Mylor Yacht Club.
John Darbyshire and Richard Collett manned a team of 6 sailors on board ‘Per Elisa’ (pictured above) and raced in Falmouth Bay before crossing the finish line in the Carrick Roads, off Mylor Yacht Harbour.
Conditions were ideal, with a light to moderate Southerly breeze allowing good progress and close racing in the sunshine. The race officer set a fairly long course with plenty of mark roundings and fortunately enough time in between for refreshment!
The race went well, with our team coming a respectable third place and receiving a bottle of champagne to celebrate their achievement.
A big thank you to Savills for holding the event, a wonderful time was had by all. We look forward to competing again next year.
