Plymouth Regatta is fast becoming one of the South West's favourite regattas.
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. Also new for 2018, there will be a race village at Plymouth Yacht Haven with a managed bar, food and entertainment each night.
The Port of Plymouth Sailing Association thank the RNSA, Plym and Royal Western Yacht Clubs and Plymouth Yacht Haven for their support of the regatta.
The hosts for the Regatta, Royal Western Yacht Club in conjunction with the Port of Plymouth Sailing Association, describe their event as 'The Yachtsman's Regatta'; which is hard to disagree with!
More information on Plymouth Regatta Week will be published near the time of the event on the Plymouth Regatta website
