The International Paint Poole Regatta team are delighted to announce that the fabulous and highly talented Pip Hare will be guest of honour at the 2022 regatta prize-giving, presenting the winners with their prizes.

"Racing will take place in Poole Bay from 30th April to 2nd May 2022 and having a household name as respected as Pip to present our winners with their awards adds a special element of glamour to the event. The regatta committee are very grateful to Pip and her team for committing to the event and I know there will be a very warm reception for her." Andrew Pearce, Poole Regatta President

Pip Hare needs no introduction following her success in becoming only the 8th women to ever finish the Vendee Globe in the 2020/21 race, alongside guiding an older yacht design round the globe in an eyebrow raising time. Pip has been a professional sailor for almost 30 years, the last 10 of which saw her move into solo sailing and her list of accomplishments is long. As well as training hard for her 2024 Vendee Globe campaign, Pip remains a journalist, author and inspiring speaker. Pip's racing team is based locally at Poole Quay Boat Haven, testament to the great facilities, sailing opportunities and picturesque coastline on the doorstep.

Together with providing scintillating action on the water, the International Paint Poole Regatta is also renowned for its welcoming pre and post-race socials hosted by the combined yacht clubs of Poole. A Friday evening Competitors' Reception allows crew to mingle prior to racing, whilst post racing socials and the prize-giving at Poole, Parkstone and the Royal Motor Yacht Clubs on the Saturday, Sunday and Monday enable everyone to relax with friendly banter after the days' action.

Make sure the 30th April - 2nd May 2022 is marked "Racing (and socialising) at The International Paint Poole Regatta" in your calendar.
