Paignton Sailing Club's POSH Preview

by Vanessa Ripley 31 Mar 15:19 BST 11-12 May 2024

Entries are now open for Paignton Sailing Club's POSH event (Paignton Open for Single Handed dinghies). This year the event is being run on 11th and 12th May and incorporates the RS Vareo Nationals which is being run on the 10th - 12th.

The unique format of POSH appeals to a range of high-performance single-handed dinghies and has been adopted by many as a class open meeting. The regatta has gone from strength to strength since it was started in 2012 with turnouts of around 100 boats with many classes incorporating their regional or national traveller circuits.

Paignton Sailing Club is renowned for hosting high=profile events with an enviable record, superb facilities and equipment, and a world-class Race Management team. The club itself is located on Paignton harbour and has plenty of parking within walking distance. It is only a short distance away from Paignton beach, from where the dinghies will be launched, allowing us to launch during any tide state into the sheltered waters of Tor Bay.

The event, which is being sponsored by Sailing Chandlery, can be entered via the website,
