    The Junk Rig Association AGM will take place on 25 May 2019 commencing at 3pm at the Brixham Yacht Club, Devon, United Kingdom. Full details are attached to this message.

    Sailing activities for members will be integrated into the Brixham Heritage Regatta. The Regatta programme is also attached.

    The JRA is very grateful to the Brixham Yacht Club and the Heritage Regatta Committee for making us feel so welcome. We hope for a good turnout of members and a fine selection junk sailing vessels at the Event.

    Rob Prince

    For those of us intending to bring our boats, the entry form is here:

    Brixham Heritage Regatta entry form

    "The Brixham Heritage Sailing Regatta, is not a race; in the modern era it is now a Corinthian Fleet, sail-in-company.
    The Heritage Committee have reviewed and re-written the Sailing Instructions for all Classes to further reflect the Corinthian status that has had to be adopted by the Regatta.
    Handicaps are applied to Classes 2 to 6, purely so that the Regatta Officer and the team can judge which boats have shown the best expertise and sailing skills during the afternoon's event."

    In other words, probably for legal and insurance reasons, it can't be called a race - but the aim is to sail around the course faster than everyone else.

    Well, I've completed my entry form and sent it in. Now all I have to do is get there (and, I hope, be in contention for the trophy awarded to the boat that comes from furthest away).

    Darn! I was hoping to be in the running for that one! Nevermind.
    Anyone interested in crewing from Cardiff to Brixham? All or part of the trip and the AGM regatta weekend. I have a berth available. Aiming to leave early-ish May for a leisurely passage to the West country South coast with time in hand to avoid any nasty weather (hopefully) and enjoy the scenery.

    Aha! A quick glance at the entries for the Jester Baltimore Challenge reveals entry no. 6: Nick Head,  in Tao, a Parkwood 28! A good follow on to the Brixham junket.

    But no other junks that I can spot.

    "Although the sails can be sheeted in to be close hauled, junks do not sail well into the wind" says Penny.

    "Harrumph", I reply. "Let's see about that."

    Weaverbird has just departed Isles of Scilly heading E.  River Rat is heading W down channel. How about a sitrep from other boats heading for Brixham?
