Sidmouth Regatta

August 24, 2019 - August 25, 2019

From the Visit Sidmouth website:

30 years ago Sidmouth Sailing Club formed a committee to revive Sidmouth Regatta.

Regatta 2017

The idea is to provide some fun events for local families and visitors who wish to join in and a more serious side for those who wish to take part in the sailing races. Over the years the event has enabled the local branch of the RNLI to profit from collections during the Saturday evening events. These collections over the years have amounted to a substantial sum.

Traditional sea based activities take place on Saturday culminating with live music and a spectacular firework display. Earlier on the popular raft race takes place followed by a courtesy visit from the Exmouth Lifeboat, weather/operational duties permitting.

Sundays events are for the children and their families. The events are all free to enter with generous prizes.

Wet weather contingencies are in place for the drawing competition and the fancy dress should the weather become inclement.

Why not enter the ‘Shop Window Competition’ and try to win a generous cash prize. Have fun looking in our local shops trying to find the numbered discs. Shops taking part will be displaying a competition poster.
