Weymouth Regatta 2016

spinlock_irc_champs_logoWeymouth Regatta is being held on 3rd & 4th September and in 2016 incorporates the Spinlock IRC National Small Boat Championships.

The Small Boat Championships are for yachts with an LOA of less than 36′ and a TCC of 0.960 or below. This national event attracts some of the best of the UK’s ‘giant killers’ – small boats that turn on a sixpence and regularly overhaul craft many times their size and cost. Winners of Spinlock IRC Championship classes will take home a specially engraved trophy to commemorate their victory.

We also have One Design and additional IRC classes, each competing for a coveted Regatta cup.

The event coincides with Weymouth Waterfest, a maritime festival with visiting tall ships, food stalls and live music that brings thousands of visitors to the town centre every year – it’s a fantastic atmosphere both on and off the water.

If you’ve not experienced Weymouth Regatta before, make 2016 the year to do it – we’ve got excellent racing and a full social programme lined up for you.

Register now

Multiple IRC and non-IRC divisions will be created according to received entries. Non-IRC boats that are outside One Design classes will require a NHC Base List handicap.

What’s on?

There’s a packed social programme ashore as well as great racing on the water..

Friday 2nd September

Inflatable Tender Race

Tender-race-poster

Inflatable tender race across the harbour, open to all. There are races for kids as well as their grown-ups, with prizes awarded for fancy dress as much as pace across the harbour. Probably a good idea to bring water pistols or at least an umbrella, even if you’re just spectating!

BBQ and social in the yard at Weymouth SC, what better way to kick off Regatta weekend?!

Weymouth Waterfest, a celebration of Maritime Culture with tall ships, jet packs, food stalls and swarthy pirates! This is a great event and attracts visitors from across the country into Weymouth town centre to create a fantastic atmosphere.



Social at Weymouth SC

Evening drinks and very likely some (optional) inter-boat tomfoolery at Weymouth Sailing Club. Hog roast, beer tokens and a great atmosphere, with fabulous views across the harbour out towards Weymouth Bay.

London 2012 Sailing Venue

All racing for the 2016 Regatta happens in Weymouth Bay and Portland Harbour – chosen for the London 2012 Olympics due its steady breeze, easy race course access within 10 minutes of leaving your mooring and the ability to set a variety of courses.

There are great visitor moorings available right in the centre of town. Please note these are a limited number of these spots available, so make sure you contact the Harbour Office to reserve your berth right now!

If you prefer a quieter location, we’d recommend either of the Dean & Reddyhoff marinas at Weymouth Marina or Portland marina.

 

Organising Authority

ycw-yacht-racing

Weymouth Regatta is organised by the Yacht Clubs of Weymouth (YCW), coordinating the volunteers and facilities from the town’s four sailing clubs: Weymouth Sailing Club, Castle Cove Sailing Club, Royal Dorset Yacht Club and RNSA Portland.

If you’d like us to incorporate your a class or area championship into Weymouth Regatta, please just get in touch – we’ve previously had Impalas, Sigmas and J24s as part of the event.

Please contact secretary@weymouthregatta.uk with any enquiries.
