RTYC Grand Tour of the West Country and Ireland

Dates: 16th July to 14th August

Pre-Rally Dinner: 20th January

Venue: South Coast and Ireland

Organisers: Richard Gribbin, Peter Halsor & Julian Trumper

Overview:  Come join us to sail in company and explore the delights of the UK West Country and Southern Irish Coast. This cruise will be run in two segments: The first segment will depart from the Solent and will explore the most picturesque harbours of Devon & Cornwall; including Dartmouth, Salcombe, River Realm and Fowey. The second segment will run from Falmouth to Ireland; exploring the famous scenery of the “Wild Atlantic Way” stretching from Cork via Kinsale, Schull, Lawrence Cove and Bantry to Dingle. There will be a one week break between the two segments to allow for people to take a break, return to work or, optionally, further explore the delights of St Mawes, Helford River and the Scilly Isles in smaller groups.   There are plentiful charter options from both the Solent and Falmouth and we also anticipate there will be many crewing opportunities for Younger Members to gain sea miles as crew or to deliver boats back at the end of the cruise.
