Poole Regatta 24-26 May

22nd May, 2014

We’re really looking forward to attending this weekend’s Poole Regatta in our capacity as the event’s Official Clothing Sponsor. We are a Silver Sponsor and are kitting out the Regatta Team, taking orders for our Hudson Wight kit at our pop-up shop & competitors, family & friends can try it all on first, PLUS we’re providing prizes galore!  A welcome message from the Regatta President, Mike Tombs is shared below:

Welcome from the President

The experience gained from previous biennial regattas has given us confidence in the running of the eighth Poole Regatta.  The increase in the number of competitors each year confirms that we have found the right formula of racing to suit all the various classes taking part.

We are delighted that International Paint are continuing with their sponsorship which, together with many other sponsors, allows us to offer generous prizes.  For this we are most grateful.

As in previous years, a number of classes are using the Regatta to hold their National Championships.  This year we welcome the J70 and J80 classes for the first time, who with the other popular keelboat classes make for a very competitive regatta.

The waters of Poole Harbour and Poole Bay allow for fair and interesting courses without the challenging tides experienced at other venues.

On shore we will be providing evening entertainment at Parkstone Yacht Club and The Poole Yacht Club, with The Royal Motor Yacht Club hosting the prizegiving.

Now is the time to prepare your boat and crew for the 2014 International Paint Poole Regatta – a sailing event not to be missed.
