Message from the Chairman

Many thanks to the contestants, the Race Management teams, the Committee and all the volunteers for their contribution to another great regatta, made even more special with the presence of some of our fantastic Team GB sailors, courtesy of Volvo. I would also particularly like to thank the RIBs and crews from the Northern Exposure Rescue organisation and from the RAF Sailing Association Safety Division for their help and support during the event.

Here on the Dart we are already hard at work to set the scene for 2017, debating the various issues that underpin both the Notices of Race and the subsequent Sailing Instructions. We hope to publish the NOR in the very near future. We would like to attract more entrants for next year and hope that those of you who have enjoyed this year's regattas, and previous ones, will do what you can to spread the word and put us in your diaries for another wonderful Dartmouth Royal Regatta running from Thursday 24th August to Sunday 27th August.

We look forward to seeing you next year and hope you will join your friends on the Passage Race from Brixham to Dartmouth on Wednesday 23rd August. 

Peter Boote
Chairman, Dartmouth Royal Regatta Sailing Week
