The International Paint Poole Regatta is scheduled for the 23rd-25th May 2020. However, in light of the current Coronavirus outbreak, the regatta committee are frequently reviewing the situation to determine the appropriate action.

The committee is continuing to plan so that the regatta may still be able to go ahead. However, the situation is being constantly monitored and further updates will be provided if the regatta needs to be postponed or run in a revised format.

If the event is unable to go ahead a refund of entry fees (minus a 4% PayPal charge) will be offered to all competitors. Alternatively you will be able to transfer your entry fee to the revised date. The regatta is run on a not for profit basis and with all sponsorship and entry fees going into creating a fantastic event.

The International Paint Poole Regatta is organised by the combined yacht clubs of Poole and is one of the largest and most loved keel boat regattas in the UK. Run in its current form since 2000, but with origins dating back to 1849 when the Canford Cup was first awarded, the regatta has become renowned for great racing and friendly socials. It is hoped that racing will take place out on the water later in May.
