2021 Catapult TT, Tresaith Marners SC

                      Travellers Trophy Event  19/20th  June 2021


The Travellers 2021 Trophy Event was hosted by Tresaith Mariners Sailing Club. This was the Catapults first time to this new venue and is probably one of the most scenic event locations. The sailing club is situated down a steep and narrow single track road that opens up to a view of Tresaith stunning sandy beach.

The closest Caravan/Camping site (Lletti) is situated on the cliff top providing beautiful panoramic vista of the whole bay. Catapult members felt the location of this site was the most suitable for our  members to sail from.

Six members travelled to this event, three members took part in the weekend event.

Tresaith sailing club comprises of a large marquee on the beach providing music during the day and a van  which provided a variety of beers & other  drinks. There  was also a van providing a good selection of hot food, tea and coffee from early morning until late evening. 

 The club and its members could not be faulted for their friendly support on and off the water. While the access to the beach and assembly of the boats required some pre planing ,this only proved to be difficult for one of our members as his catapult was on his trailer behind his motor home, however this could have been overcome had his recent health not been compromised by the steepness of the inclines.

All that aside if members can cope with organising their days to minimise the number of journeys up and down the slopes, all members felt it may be well worth repeating.

Saturday; Warm Sunny with light southerly winds.
