Welcome to the Plymouth Regatta 2020

Plymouth Regatta

10 July - 12 July 2020

As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, this event has been postponed by the event organisers. The event is due to return in 2021.


New to racing? The Plymouth Regatta has an open invitation to all yachts, regardless of your competitive spirit. If you're just hoping for a fun and social sail around a course with other like-minded yachts and teams, then enter the WHITE SAIL fleet race. This race is a great way to learn about racing, without feeling initimidated by the competitive teams. Entry is open on the official website. 

Plymouth Regatta is fast becoming one of the South West's favourite and most popular regattas with fun and competitive racing on the water, followed by a lively race village and entertainment programme in the Yacht Haven

For racers, sailing in the Plymouth waters is hard to beat. Inside Plymouth Sound provides flatter waters but with hills surrounding this playground, racers are kept on their toes by plenty of wind shifts. Outside of Plymouth Sound has a racing area with minimal tidal influences but rougher seas which have built from the Atlantic Ocean.

There is a new formula for the event this year with fleets and courses being set for each handicap system - You choose which one you want to race in. This year the event will incorporate the Seascape 18 National Championships and also the South West VPRS Championship. As well as those championships we have racing available for MOCRA, IRC, J24, Squib and Port Handicap Cruiser racing. In addition there will be a single handed race for those that prefer to go it alone.

Participants will berth at Plymouth Yacht Haven who can provide lifting and launching facilities for those arriving by road, pre-regatta race scrubs (by arrangement) as well as pontoon berthing throughout the regatta.
