Rival Owners Association


ROA West Country meet - Autumn 2005

October 1st/2nd, in Fowey.

We had a good end-of-season meet in Fowey over the weekend of October 1st/2nd, though numbers were a little lower than usual. Seventeen members and guests, representing seven Rivals, attended the dinner at the Royal Fowey on the Saturday night. We received the usual warm welcome at the Club and the conversations blew fresh-to-strong throughout the evening. It was a particular pleasure to welcome the new owners of R34 Samphire of Yealm. The forecast had not been promising and only Williwaw was foolish enough to sail in, with WNW winds of F6-7 on the nose all the way from Plymouth. In compensation, we had an excellent return passage on the Sunday, with a northerly F4-5 and some sunshine.
