The Swallowtail Race is open to all sailing craft in the RCYC Cruiser Fleet. Most members will have seen the stunning trophy that is presented every year to the winner.

The start will be to the east of the Rice & Cole Moorings at 10:30 heading eastwards.

The course will be advised nearer the day when we have some idea of the weather conditions and boats entered.


The Bistro will be at the RCYC Clubhouse, we will aim to be seated at 18:30.

All are welcome to the Bistro, particularly those who support Cruiser Fleet events but are unable to join in the racing on this occasion.

Dress code starts at ‘I have just been in a sailing race’ towards ‘casual’.


Those intending to enter the race (not a firm commitment) please let Class Captain Steve Barham know, by emailing-


Please book in for the Bistro by telephoning the office as usual on 01621 782105.
