The regatta hosts a number of events from competitive sailing to rowing and aerial displays, military retreats and tattoos and a procession lead by the band of Her Majesty’ Royal Marines. The Dartmouth Regatta is well established and attracts over 150,000 people every year making it a very lively event.
