The 17th Annual Suffolk Yacht Harbour Regatta

After the success of last year’s event, excitement is building as we draw ever closer to the highlight of our 2018 sailing calendar, our Classic Regatta, set to take place on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th June.

 As returning competitors will know, we enjoyed impeccable weather and an unforgettable regatta with perfect sailing conditions last year. As well as a magnificent weekend of racing, the regatta is also a proud celebration of classic boats. Local and visiting classic yacht owners enjoy the opportunity to sail in a fleet of beautiful classic yachts at Suffolk Yacht Harbour, a memorable experience and truly spectacular sight.

 Suffolk Yacht Harbour’s Classic Regatta welcomes everyone from keen racers to social sailors to take part in the fast, slow and Stella classes, racing in Dovercourt Bay, Harwich Harbour, and the Orwell and Stour estuaries. The popularity of this event is built on its reputation for being relaxed, and the perfect opportunity for classic boat owners to come together and enjoy a weekend of sailing. Off the water, there is much fun to be had at our regatta party held aboard the Haven Ports Yacht Club lightship, a highlight of the weekend.

If you would like to participate in the Classic Regatta, now is the time to start getting your yacht and crew organised!
