The Royal Torbay Yacht Club is looking forward to the opportunity welcoming sailors from around the country to this popular and prestigious regatta, one of the oldest such events in the country and once again taking place over the Bank Holiday weekend at the end of August. The Regatta has been a highlight of the summer season in Torquay for over 200 years and was the first yachting regatta in the country to be granted royal patronage.

There will as always be a real buzz of activity around the harbour with three great days of racing for IRC and Cruisers, Sportsboats, PY Dinghies and Junior Classes all taking place on the fine sailing waters of Torbay on the English Riviera.

Racing will take place on three separate courses spread across the bay all organised by the Race Teams of the Royal Torbay Yacht Club.

Free berthing for yachts and dinghies is included in the entry fees and from the sheltered harbour, there is quick and easy access to the race areas. The town offers an enviable range of accommodation within walking distance of the club and harbour. The town centre, bars, restaurants and car parks are all nearby.

The regatta will this year be enhanced by the presence of the J/70 UK Class National Championships being held at the same time. Racing takes place on its own course area and is already attracting entries from International J/70 sailors, keen to spend time in Torbay in preparation for the J/70 World Championships, also in Torbay during the following week. Entries already include multiple world champions, Olympians and local teams all set to compete against the worlds best.
