2016 sailing season

It has been an excellent season, with superb sailing over the summer.

The Royal Escape Race from Brighton to Fécamp on 27th May saw perfect conditions of a force 4 gusting 5 on the beam, with Sea Scamp achieving second in class.

On 9th-10th July, Sea Scamp was fifth in division at the Dartmouth Classics.

For the Yacht Club Classique Plymouth to Camaret Revival Race on 12-13th July she covered the 148 miles at an average speed of 6.6 knots to finish sixth overall. To cap that, Sea Scamp was awarded the prestigious Prix de la Ville de Brest Special Prize. After the Brest Maritime Festival Sea Scamp sailed in the Douarnenez Temps Fête.

More leisurely trips included spring weekends and midweek sails in the Solent in April and May, then Normandy, Brittany and the West Country for the summer season, with four cross-channel crossings. Then Sea Scamp returned to Shamrock Quay in August for more weekend sails, including the annual Offshore Cruising Club regatta.
