Exe Sails will again be sponsoring the 2019 Roadford Rocket on Feb 10th

      Last year an amazing entry of 64 boats. Hopefully we can get over 70 this year. Water levels did drop alarmingly this Autumn after the dry summer, but the November and December rains have seen the level up to Jan 2017 , just below the 2018 level. Catering on site will again be by Okehampton Farm Foods, excellent bacon butties.

    The event is part of three series , the original SW Challenge, the Rocket , Steamer and Beastie; the SW Winter series and also the lake series within that. There are great sponsorship prizes available. GPS tracking will be available for all boats, provided by Sailing Southwest. Entry data will be shared with the series administrators for the purpose of running the series.

    This year we will use current RYA PYs for the event and the finishing arrangements will be slightly different, please see the Sailing Instructions and they will be clarified at the briefing on the day. The start times are based on laser 4.7 PY as time zero. If you are intending to come with a slower boat, please let me know so we can alter the start times accordingly.

    We have enough car & boat parking, but please follow marshal's instructions so we can every-one in!

    In the event of severe weather please follow this website and the club facebook page in case cancellation is necessary

      This year the Charity Collection will be for the RNLI, an organisation we all hope we will never need!! A donation from event proceeds will be made and collection tins will be on site.
