2021 National Championships at Royal Torbay Yacht Club

Have a look at the 2021 National Championship venue.

We sailed the National Championship at Torbay in 2018, and we were so pleased we’re going back in 2021.

  • Boat park on the harbour wall
  • Launch down a concrete slipway directly from the wall into the harbour
  • Quick access from there to the race area in the bay
  • 5 minute’s walk from the harbour to the Club
  • Enjoy the RTYC ballroom, dining room, bar and garden all with fine views of the bay
The professionalism of the video is a reflection of the race organisation of the Club!
