Dartmouth Royal Regatta Sailing Week: Who we are



Regattas have flourished along the English south coast since the early 1820s, with Dartmouth being recognised as a key player on ‘the regatta circuit’ since 1822. The dramatic cliffs around the mouth of the River Dart (The Range) form a beautiful natural theatre with many vantage points from where the sailing races can be easily seen. Since 1822, The Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta has grown extensively - it now offers an extraordinary mix of high-class competitive sailing and rowing, with a plethora of diverse social events and activities. Dartmouth Royal Regatta Sailing Week represents the sailing elements of The Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta. …..read more


Dartmouth Royal Regatta Sailing Week is coordinated by the three sailing clubs on the River Dart - Royal Dart Yacht Club (RDYC - Race HQ), Dartmouth Yacht Club (DYC), and Dittisham Sailing Club (DSC) – with all three clubs being represented on The Joint Regatta Sailing Committee (JRSC). The combined expertise and resources of the three clubs enables us to organise an exciting and rewarding event for dinghies, yachts and keelboats.You will receive a warm welcome at all!


Dartmouth Royal Regatta Sailing Week 2018 will begin with senior dinghy racing from 19th to 22th August within the River Dart based at DSC, a change which has been forced upon us by the tides. The Junior Dinghy Racing wil be from 25th to 28th August based at RDYC. These will be followed on 29th August to 1st September by four full days of racing, for all classes of yachts and keelboats, in Start Bay. And on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd September there will be a White Sail Event designed for those sailors who want to enjoy the pleasures of Start Bay, and witness the racing from the water, while participating in a gentle, self administered race.
