Been looking for annual sailing event/regatta I could trailer my dinghy to and base the family holiday round.

I've found:
Abersoch Dinghy Week
Bass Week
North West Norfolk Week

Are there any others I should consider? Any weekend or one day opens to also look out for?

Which would be best for a novice sailor in a Phantom or Solution Dinghy (I know Abersoch is on the Phantom calendar)

Oulton broad week , they sail loads of races each day so you pick an choose which ones to do to suit what you’re doing with the family .
Or .
As you mentioned,North Norfolk week, advantage of this is they tend to sail very early in the mornings to catch the tide so you have the rest of the day with the family ,disadvantage is you have to take your boat to a different location every day .
My choice would be Oulton Broad week.  Smile

Either of the Salcombe weeks. Yacht club regatta is sl more serious racing, Town week is more relaxed. Either way 1 longish race a day and the rest of the time for the family holiday. Salcombe Town Regatta has lots of fun runs, crab catching, sandcastle building etc etc.
