2021 Weymouth Yacht Regatta

11th and 12th September 2021 – Weymouth Yacht Regatta, organised by the combined Yacht Clubs of Weymouth (YCW) is open to yachts with an IRC rating or participating in a One Design Class. This year, the event also incorporates the IRC Spinlock Southern Championships.

If there is Covid-19 government guidance active when the event is held, we will do our best to go ahead with racing. As an indication, measures taken in 2020 included:

  • Prize-giving held outside, online or on your own boat for your safety.
  • No organised social events.
  • Boat crews may be restricted in number or to household and support bubbles.
  • No skipper’s packs, sorry!

Hopefully we’ll be able to run the event without the precautions above. We’ll keep you informed as our planning progresses over the coming months and do our best to ensure Weymouth Regatta 2021 goes ahead both safely and fairly.

When entries open, there will be an ‘Early bird’ discount for entries received by midnight on 15th July 2021.

Visit Weymouth for Regatta

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 Boatfolk marinas at Weymouth Marina or Portland marina.

There’s a wide range of accommodation options for visiting crews. Race teams always get a warm welcome at Acqua Beach B&B.

Visit Love Weymouth for tourist information and extensive accommodation listings.

About Weymouth Yacht Regatta

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.

ycw-yacht-racingWeymouth Regatta is organised by the Yacht Clubs of Weymouth (YCW), coordinating the volunteers and facilities from local sailing organisations: Weymouth Sailing Club, Castle Cove Sailing Club, Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy, Royal Dorset Yacht Club and RNSA Portland.

If you’d like us to incorporate your class or championship into Weymouth Regatta, please just get in touch – we’ve previously had VX One, Impala, Sigma and J24 one design classes as part of the event.
