Now for other news updates
Our sponsor Spinlock is offering prizes of two Spinlock Rig Sense rig tension gauges which are normally priced at £250 each in your local chandlery shop.
To make this simple for everyone, we have decided to enter all participating yachts and keel boats automatically in this draw. We will draw TWO winners at the regatta and the winning skippers will get a gauge to fit their rig size/ diameter. There is also a free app to enable you to record settings for different wind strengths.
In total we have well over £2,000 worth of prizes as well as great discount offers on Helly Hansen yacht clothing, Chatham deck shoes and on charter sailing bookings with Sunsail UK Ltd.
Finally don’t forget your Hands Up photo!! The best photo will win the Salcombe gin and Dartington glasses prize (and you and your crew can sample the merchandise at our G&T tastings).

White Sail Event
CALLING ALL CRUISING SAILORS !!
You can win major prizes by taking part in this years fun event at Dartmouth Royal Regatta Sailing Week!
The Regatta includes a special event for cruising sailors – The “ White Sail Event”, which is a relaxed fun race run over a mainly reaching course set inshore in Start Bay. There are no class rules or massed starts and the organisers hope that many of the locally based cruising yachts will join in and experience the fun and excitement of being part of the Regatta.
WHATS MORE, EVERY ENTRANT AND CREW TAKING PART WILL BE ELIGIBLE TO ENTER THE MANY PRIZE DRAW COMPETITIONS TO WIN MAJOR PRIZES ON OFFER FROM OUR SPONSORS.
*A FREE charter sailing holiday in the Med from Sunsail
* A FREE rig check and tension gauge from Spinlock.
* Sailing gear from Helly Hansen and Chatham Marine
You can also take part in our Photo competition by submitting your own “HANDS UP” crew photo to win a prize of a presentation pack of premium Salcombe Gin and Dartington glasses.
In addition to all these prize draws and competitions, yachts competing in the White Sail Event will be entered in a separate prize draw to win a FREE Navionics electronic chart for UK and European waters worth £200, from the race sponsor, Navionics Ltd.
Taking part in the event is easy. There are no class rules or measurement certification and spinnakers and cruising chutes are not allowed. Competitors will time themselves over the start and finish and note the yacht ahead and astern. Boats should have a Byron handicap (it's easy, click here for details), but failing that, a conservative handicap will be allocated according to the best guess of the Chairman in the spirit of the event.
You enter by completing the on line entry form which is located by clicking on "ENTER NOW" on ths page, and thats it!
At the same time as completing your entry details you can register for the Sunsail charter sailing holiday draw which requires a separate registration.
So what are you waiting for ? Join us this year and experience all the fun of the regatta afloat and ashore!
So.. HANDS UP!!.....Who wants to join in the fun race for cruisers at Dartmouth Regatta?
WE ALL DO !!
