A superb selection of classes will be competing at The International Paint Poole Regatta 2022 when racing commences in four months (30th April to 2nd May).

Eighteen classes have committed to be out on the water providing close competition between keelboats of all shapes and sizes. The VPRS and 2.4mR classes will be hosting their National Championships at Poole, alongside the IRC Southern Area Championship. The J24 racing will be a Worlds Qualifier event and the J70's will be sailing as a part of their UK Grand Slam.

  • IRC 1,2 & 3 inc IRC Southern Area Championship
  • VPRS 1 & 2 inc National Championship
  • Performance 40
  • Cape 31

With high performance racing fleets such as the Performance 40, Cape 31 and HP30's travelling to Poole, the regatta has cemented itself as one of the not to be missed, premier UK yacht racing events, whilst also remaining a down to earth and accessible weekend of action for everyone who enjoys serious, but friendly competition. The fantastic post racing socials hosted by the welcoming combined yacht clubs of Poole, may also hold slight appeal!

With only four months to go and 2022 calendars now on the wall, get in quickly and mark the 30th April - 2nd May as "Racing at The International Paint Poole Regatta" now.
