Four days of racing around Bridgwater Bay started on Saturday July 9th at 2.30pm and then the second race will be held on Sunday July 10th at 3.30pm.
The event is being held over two weekends, with four yacht races taking place in the estuary that will be visible to seafront walkers, weather permitting. There will also be Cornish Pilot Gigs out racing in time trials.
