Saturday 10th – Friday 16 August 2019
If you’ve ever been to Camel Week in North Cornwall then you’ll know all about it, but if you haven’t then you’re missing out. It’s really just a great seaside holiday week, with daily dinghy racing thrown in. Because of the tides there is only one race a day, so there is plenty of time to play, go surfing, water-skiing, biking, fishing, sight-seeing, or just chill out on the sandy beach.
Camel Week is the annual sailing regatta run by Rock Sailing & Water Ski Club from its club-house, an ancient converted stone warehouse, perched on the shore of the Camel Estuary directly across from Padstow.
Races are run in the sheltered waters of the estuary. It is of course an open event with visitors from all over, and you’re just as likely to be calling starboard on a champion as on a holiday sailor.
In 2019 racing starts on Saturday 10th August, with a bonus “round the island” race (weather permitting) out of the estuary on Friday 16th August.
Entries will be restricted to about 100 boats this year, so do pre-register to be sure of a place.
