An executive decision has been made by the Menai Straits Regattas committee that this year's 2020 event has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Let's hope that next year we will be able to go ahead with the Regattas and let's make it a good one. We agreed at our last meeting that the 2021 event will commence on July 26th.

The Menai Strait Regattas are raced over the fortnight in late July to early August. The sailing takes place on the Menai Strait, a narrow stretch of water separating Anglesey from mainland North Wales. The majority of the boats racing are classic boats such as the Fife OD, the Mersey Mylne OD, and the Conway OD. We also welcome Cruisers and Dinghies in handicap fleets. The event is largely based at Beaumaris towards the Northern end of the Strait but other venues along the Strait are included right up to Caernarfon towards the Southern end.

The regattas include the iconic races from Beaumaris to Caernarfon through the Swellies and round Puffin Island.
