Dartmouth Royal Regatta Sailing Week 2015

Dartmouth Royal Regatta Sailing Week 2015
Saturday 22nd August 2015 to Saturday 29th August 2015

Dartmouth Royal Regatta Sailing Week 2015
22nd – 29th August, 2015

A brand new name for a very old sailing regatta!
First held on the River Dart in 1822, Queen Victoria granted the town regatta it’s royal charter in 1856, apparently because she had enjoyed her visit so much. Presumably, in this instance, she was amused so, since then, we’ve always aimed to amuse and to make sure we’re one of the most fun events on the UK regatta circuit, on shore as well as off.
Apart from fine sailing in Start Bay and the beautiful River Dart itself, shore-side there;s all the fun of the fair, from the Regatta Ball to the Red Arrows air displays, spectacular fireworks in the evening and, of course, a warm welcome from the three organising clubs: Royal Dart Yacht Club (race HQ), Dartmouth Yacht Club and Dittisham Sailing Club.
For 2015 there will be around 300 boats competing in almost 50 races for IRC and Byron handicap classes, Keelboats, hi-tech Sportsboats and of course Junior and Senior Dinghies. We also hope entry numbers will support one design classes for J109’s, J24’s and National Squibs.
All of which means that, along with the new course signalling system and several other improvements as a result of feedback from our recent competitors survey, 2015 is your year to enter what’s arguably the UK’s newest Royal Regatta.

Junior & Senior Dinghies - August 22 - 25
Passage Race - August 26
Yachts & Keelboats - August 27 – 30
Gaffer Event August 29 – 30
White Sail Event - August 29


White Sail Event....Dartmouth Week is a celebration of sailing and we are conscious that there are plenty of sailors who don't necessarily want to race all the time. The White Sail Event is designed for those sailors who want to enjoy the pleasures of Start Bay, and witness the racing from the water, while participating in a gentle, self administered event, to add a little spice to their Saturday under sail. There is no need for spinnakers or large numbers of crew, you simply time yourselves across the start line, complete a course and time yourselves at the finish. In the spirit of the event, handicaps will be allocated according to the best guess of the Chairman and a prize awarded to the winner.

A classical soprano, who oozes pure class, Sophie is perfect for the Regatta Proms as she has performed at many events held by the Royal British Legion, singing twice at the Colston Hall, Bristol accompanied by the Band of the Army Air Corps. Providing the music again this year is Spectrum Music. They worked so well with Sophie last year that it seemed sensible to bring them both back!
