Dartmouth Royal Regatta and Sailing Week

August 23 - August 27

Dartmouth Regatta

The Dartmouth Royal Regatta Sailing Week is the oldest regatta in the UK –  first run in 1822.  This race week is not such a pure yachting regatta but also a festival of the sea, air and a celebration of all things British set on the beautiful Devonshire coastline and River Dart.

A well kept secret in the sailing calendar for those in the know, Dartmouth Week is a real highlight of the English Summer Sailing Calendar. With over 300 boats attending the four day Regatta it is a great way to end the summer.

Travel and Accommodation

There are many B&Bs and Inns on both sides of the river, those these fill up fast for the Regatta Week. There is a small ferry that regularly runs from ones side of the river to the other.

The nearest train station with lines to London and other major cities is Totnes, 12 miles away from Dartmouth.

Parking is available in the Park and Ride at the top of town, plus other smaller car parks.
