Celebrating the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower and Speedwell from Dartmouth to The New World

The Dartmouth Classic Regatta would have taken place on the weekend of 27th and 28th June 2020. This biennial event has been running since 2014 and alternates with the Classic Channel Regatta. We have between 35 and 40 entrants mainly from the West Country although they have come from as far as the East Coast in previous years.

The regatta consists of two days racing with two shorter races on Saturday preceded by a Sail Past for all the yachts. On Sunday there will be a longer race in Start Bay. The weekend will start with welcome drinks and skippers' briefing on Friday evening followed by a crew supper. On Saturday evening there will be a Regatta dinner and after the racing on Sunday the prize giving and a barbecue.

The boats range from those designed and built in about 1910 to the mid-seventies and with a few modern spirit of tradition yachts built to a classic design. Many of them have been lovingly restored by their owners and who are justifiably proud of their boats!
