The Baltic Exchange III offshore lifeboat is located in Salcombe and BESA organises a bi-annual weekend racing Salcombe Yawls.
The yawl owners kindly give up a weekend to allow BESA to helm or crew their yawls in a fun weekend fundraiser
There are three to four races on Saturday (including a treasure hunt as last race) and two races before lunch on Sunday.
These are followed by dinner in Winking Prawn Beach Restaurant along with a raffle.

Team/company entry is £750 which includes 4 people (+ yawl owner and partner) for a three course dinner including bottle of wine per head. Of this, the Salcombe RNLI receives £350 donation per team/company plus what the raffle raises.
Partners may (allowing for weather/incidents) get to go out on the Baltic III Lifeboat and watch the racing from various spectators boats supplied by locals.
The event is a fun racing weekend and open to all who would like to make up a team.
Hotels and B&Bs are available in Salcombe and those not wishing to drive can take a train from Paddington to Totnes.
