Greeting cards of Salcombe

The UK coastline is one of the most beautiful in Europe and has a huge number of sailing towns that range from rocky and scenic to stylish and dramatic. It’s destinations are known to, and admired by many visitors from around the world. You just can’t beat the rugged cliffs and lush green landscape of England, which is unofficially the ‘home of sailing’ and it has a long and glorious tradition of boat building and for rearing fine sailors. Salcombe on the South Devon coast is particular scenic with lovely spots for sailing traditional boats and classic yachts.

Salcombe is known for its outstanding views, rolling surrounding countryside, breath-taking natural beauty, sparkling turquoise waters and rugged cliffs. Once a major port for the fruit trade, it has now found fame as a safe haven for family holidays. The Salcombe Town Regatta takes place every year for one week in late July/early August. This year it will be on from 3rd – 10th August 2024 and many visitors and yachtsmen are expected.

Ric has recently created a range of greeting cards made from his original paintings of Salcombe, which were initially produced between 2017 and 2018 for the Tonic Gallery (at the time based in Island Street). At present this arrangement has paused, however the gallery is still operating from a new location in 7-9 Union St, Salcombe TQ8 8BZ.
