We’re planning to go ahead with the event as planned but will be ever mindful of the government’s current Covid-19 guidance:

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

Please read the guidance below. We’ll keep you informed as our planning progresses over the coming weeks and do our best to ensure Weymouth Regatta 2020 goes ahead both safely and fairly. We’ve all been locked up for months, so if we can run the event in some form, we will!

Covid-19 Guidance

The responsibility for the safety of crew and following government guidance rests with each vessel’s skipper. This includes keeping crew safe from exposure to Covid-19 as well as their safety at sea.

Maximum Crew Limit

A limitation on the number of persons onboard to assist compliance with UK government COVID-19 guidance is strongly recommended. This recommendation is relaxed if mitigation measures such as the wearing of face masks whilst onboard are observed.

Vessel LOAMaximum persons onboard (incl helm)
18′ to 21′2
22′ to 27′3
28′ to 30′4
30′ to 34′5
35′ and above6

Berthing

Berthing is restricted this year in Weymouth Harbour as rafting of vessels is currently not permitted due to C19. Berths must be booked in advance but not until 2 weeks before the regatta event. Alternatives include…

Boatfolk’s Weymouth marina above the town bridge which opens every 2hrs from 8am onwards during the summer. The 10am bridge will easily get you onto the race course in time for the first signal.

Boatfolk’s Portland marina is around 30 minutes under engine to the start line. Slip your lines at 0930h latest!
