SailGP on Plymouth Sound
30 July - 31 July
Last year a small number of AYRS members watched the SailGP racing in Plymouth Sound and it was spectacular. SailGP is raced with strict one-design hydrofoil catamarans which are probably the fastest racing yachts in existence today, only the AC75 might be faster, but I think probably not. (debatable!) If members would like to watch SailGP at Plymouth this year perhaps we can arrange to meet up, both to watch the racing and/or for a social gathering or meal afterwards. Let me know if this is of interest – email firstname.lastname@example.org. It is a bit early to make definite plans but the most likely option for spectators is to watch from Plymouth Hoe, either by buying a ticket to the official viewing area or by joining the crowds that are likely to form along the roads to the seaward side of the Hoe. Or last year two of us found what could be an even better view point on the lane between Staddiscombe Heights and Jennicliff. And another possiblity is to watch from afloat in Plymouth Sound if we have a local member with a suitable vessel, indeed I might be able to provide such a vessel but that depends on how I get on with re-fit work this year!
