News Update

We are planning and working with our sponsors to make Dartmouth Royal Regatta Sailing Week bigger and better than ever! We will be posting a series of updates here over the coming weeks as the details of events, competitions and prize draws are finalised.

We welcome competitors and visitors from many locations and we traditionally have a feeder race from the east of the Dart. This is organised in conjunction with Royal Torbay and Brixham Yacht Clubs. We also have plans for a western feeder race which will be announced shortly. Entries for these can be made on line as with all other events.

SPECIAL PRIZE for a VISITING YACHT: This year in addition to the prizes for these feeder races we are inviting all our visitors to submit their cruise log and a report on the voyage from your home port to Dartmouth. There will be a prize for the yacht and skipper submitting the best log and cruise report as judged by our committee.

WIN a FREE RIG CHECK & TUNE: Entrants to any of the keel boat events during Dartmouth Royal Regatta Sailing Week will be eligible to take part in a prize draw to win a FREE rig check which will be carried out by Rigging Solutions Ltd in Dartmouth. Your Dartmouth Sailing Week entry must be received before the end of July to be eligible and your yacht must have maximum standing rigging diameter of 10mm. This is an opportunity to really get your yacht  tuned up to its top potential! If like many cruiser/racer sailors you have never had your rig professionally tuned to optimise performance, you will be amazed at what this prize could do for your yacht. You will still need to supply the sailing skills however!!

WIN a FREE SPINLOCK TENSION GAUGEWith our sponsor Spinlock we will be awarding two lucky competitors a FREE Spinlock Rig Sense tension gauge. These state of the art gauges are easy to use and there is an app to record your settings for different wind strengths. The gauges cover standing rigging from 2 to 5 mm diameter and from 5 to 8 mm diameter, so we will need details of your rig prior to the draw. We will request this information after your entry is received. To check out further information about these and other Spinlock products, click here.
