In just over 6 weeks time sailing events at the Torbay Royal Regatta 2016 will be underway and this year promises to be another great occasion with over a 100 yachts and dinghies expected.

The Cherub and 4000 dinghy classes have both chosen Torbay for their National Championships as an integral part of regatta, both classes are looking forward enthusiastically to returning to the fine sailing waters of Torbay.

The Royal Torbay Yacht Club now boasts one of the largest and most competitive IRC Fleets in the South West, with regular racing on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings. IRC yachts can expect to enjoy 4 days of fast and furious regatta sailing following by a lively and entertaining social programme.

Sportsboat racing is always popular in Torbay, and with a growing number of local SB20s and their National Championship being hosted by the RTYC in September this year a strong turnout is expected.

Racing on their own courses PY Dinghies and Asymmetric dinghy classes are likely to attract significant entries and visitors can expect strong competition from local boats. Junior Dinghy classes form an integral part of the regatta and are always well supported especially by local clubs.

Entry forms are now available online at www.royalregatta.co.uk
