Entries continue to flood in for The International Paint Poole Regatta taking place from 30th April to 2nd May, whilst the regatta social events are shaping up to put a smile on everyone's faces after long days on the water. The regatta committee are delighted to welcome Salcombe Distilling Co as the new Spirits Partner for the event and the return of Hall and Woodhouse Brewery who will be kindly providing free beer at the pre-racing entrant's bash.

The Salcombe Distilling Co's excellent Gin Bar will be found at every regatta social event, mixing up zesty G&Ts for all competitors to savour free of charge alongside providing liquid prizes for the class winners. They will be adding a whole new dimension to the regatta social events and the regatta committee are hugely grateful for their support.

The International Paint Poole Regatta's social events provide a chance to relax and unwind after the intense concentration on the day's racing. They are a great opportunity to explore the host yacht club's facilities and banter with fellow competitors about the day's action on the water.

The events also host the daily prize-giving with everyone in the mix to win something each evening. It is not just the winners who are rewarded at Poole! This year the regatta committee have sourced two unique Poole Regatta wines. Bottles of Reservé St Marc Sauvigon Blanc and Merlot will be up for grabs throughout the weekend.

There is also the opportunity to get to know and pick up goodies from the regatta sponsors who are always keen to get involved and join in the fun. The regatta could not take place without the support of International Paint, Poole Harbour Commissioners, Haven Knox-Johnston Insurance, Savills, Coleman Marine and The Knot Agency.

Discounted entry fees are available until the 20th March, so enter now and be a part of one of the best loved regattas in the UK.
