The International Paint Poole Regatta 2020 is still 17 months away, but that has not stopped many sailing classes committing to making Poole a significant event in their 2020 racing calendars. It is already confirmed that the J24 and J80 National Championships will be held at the Regatta, prior to the J24 Worlds being hosted in Poole shortly after.

Discussions are also at an advanced stage with the Fast 40+, Performance 40, HP30 and Quarter Ton fleets to hold championships during Poole as well. The International Paint Poole Regatta also plans to host the 2020 IRC Southern Area Championships. 2018 was a fantastic weekend of racing and 2020 looks to be unmissable. That is before even considering the social side of the weekend. For those who have not previously competed at Poole Regatta, the evening social events are considered as important as the racing.

Preparations are well under way for the 2020 event which will be held across the May bank holiday from 23rd to 25th May. In 2018 over 1500 crew on nearly 160 yachts competed in 15 classes and enjoyed four post racing social gatherings; figures expected to be surpassed next year. The historic Canford Cup, which will be awarded again in 2020 to the overall regatta winner, was presented to Richard Powell, sailing SB20 - Marvel in 2018.

The regatta will once again be hosted by the combined yacht clubs of Poole, which sees the eight clubs based in Poole harbour come together to organise and run one of the largest, best managed and most well known regattas in the UK.

Time passes rapidly, so save the date and make sure the International Paint Poole Regatta is in your calendar for 2020.
