Entries open for the International Paint Poole Regatta 2020
Competitive racing across 17 classes will be taking place from 23rd to 25th May 2020 in scenic Poole Bay and Harbour as part of the International Paint Poole Regatta.
With four National Championships the Spinlock IRC Southern Area Championship, Race Circuit Rounds for the Fast40+, Performance 40 and IC37 fleets, alongside class starts for the Quarter Ton and one design yachts including J80s, J24s and new RS21s, there will be three great days of action on water.
Over 160 yachts are expected to race for one of the most historic trophies in yacht racing, the coveted Canford Cup, dating from 1849 and awarded at the modern Poole Regatta since 2016 after being rediscovered and purchased at auction in 2015.
The International Paint Poole Regatta also features pre- and post-race socials hosted by the combined yacht clubs of Poole. On Friday night, the Competitors Reception allows crew to mingle prior to racing, and there are post racing socials and prize givings at Poole and Parkstone Yacht Clubs over the three days.
For those travelling from further afield who want to race at both The International Paint Poole Regatta and The Round the Island Race, special berthing offers and feeder race access has been arranged. Enter via the website.
