• Salcombe has already seen high visitor numbers, it is hoped that this is a pre-cursor to a record season.
  • The Salcombe Town Regatta was a huge hit with both locals and visitors and a huge thanks goes out to all of the hard working organisers, the event proves to be one of the biggest draws for the town. The fireworks were spectacular, and the window of good weather that opened up for firework night added to the impact of an amazing display.
  • The following week saw the Salcombe Yacht Club Regatta and again sailing enthusiasts took to the water and town benefited from a high number of visitors. Many classes and races competed and it is always a delight to see the estuary near full of colourful sails all jockeying for best position.
  • We also saw the safe arrival of the two brave and intrepid rowers who successfully completed their unbelievable challenge of rowing across the Atlantic. Tom Rainey and Lawrence Walters set out from Manhattan, New York to row 3,800 miles unsupported across the North Atlantic Ocean to honour the memory of Tom’s Father Luke, who died from a brain tumour and raise £250,000 for the Brain Tumour Charity. . Many people gathered at Whitestrand to greet them with a lifting carnival atmosphere.
