Weymouth Regatta 2017 is being held on 2rd & 3rd September and this year incorporates the Spinlock IRC Southern Area Championships.

Winners of Spinlock IRC Championship classes will take home a specially engraved trophy to commemorate their victory. We also have One Design classes, each competing for a coveted Regatta cup.

If you’ve not experienced Weymouth Regatta before, make 2017 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.

Apply now for a 20% discount on your entry fee. This offer closes at midnight on 24th July 2017.

London 2012 Sailing Venue

All racing for the 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 there are a limited number of these spots available, so make sure you contact the Harbour Office to reserve your berth when you enter the Regatta.

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

What’s on?

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

Friday 1st 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?!


Saturday 2nd September

Social at Weymouth SC

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



Sunday 3rd September
