Beer Luggers Club was formed in 1985.
The first meeting was held on 1st March at the Anchor Hotel, Beer, attended by Archie Lockyer, Greg Lockyer, Alan Abbott, Paul Vine, Carol Green, Mike Green and Alistair Green.
The first race was held on Monday 20th May 1985 and six boats took part. In those days fewer races were held - in 1986 there were six - and the boats were all used elsewhere for self-drive hire or potting. Click for more info on origins of club
