With entries closing shortly on the 24th April, the Poole Regatta committee are pleased to announce that Poole Sailability is the official charity for the 2022 event.

Poole Sailability is a local charity which works to provide opportunities for anybody with impaired health and disabilities to get out on the water sailing amongst the spectacular setting of Poole Harbour. The large gathering of likeminded sailors that the regatta brings together, provides the perfect opportunity to build awareness of the charity and fundraise to help them continue their work.

Poole Regatta has become one of the most popular regattas on the South Coast and provides closely matched racing on five courses inside and outside the harbour, for intense competition amongst classes. Sixteen classes are committed to Poole in 2022, with the semi-professionals of the Cape 31's and Performance 40's out on the water alongside serious amateur crews in the IRC, VPRS, J70, J80, J24, Sonata, 2.4mR, Flying 15, Redwing, Shrimper, R19, Quarter Ton and XOD classes. The regatta will also host the IRC Southern Area Championship with up to 3 IRC Classes, the VPRS National Championship with 2 classes, the 2.4mR National Tidal Championship and race 2 of the J70 Grand Slam Series.

With such diverse fleets and crew from all manner of backgrounds competing at Poole, encouraging increased participation in sailing as a whole and providing a chance for those who may otherwise not have the opportunity, is a natural choice when it comes to selecting a charitable partner.

The team from Poole Sailability will be attending each of the regatta's well attended social events at Royal Motor Yacht Club, Poole Quay Boat Haven, Poole Yacht Club and Parkstone Yacht Club, so make sure to have a chat about their work when attending.

There is still time to enter, so put the 30th April - 2nd May 2022 in your diary and join in the fun at The International Paint Poole Regatta.
