The Medway Yacht Club keelboat regatta is a relaxed event offering three classes of handicap racing for cruisers plus one design racing for Dragons, Sonatas and Squibs. All races start and finish from committee boats in the River Medway or the Thames Estuary apart from the Squibs which will use the normal club line. This year the Regatta will incorporate the Sonata East Coast Championships. To get in some practice before the event all competitors are welcome to join in our normal Wednesday Evening race which will start at 19:00 on 1st June.
To avoid a clash with the scheduled River Pageant to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee on 4th June 2022 the Medway Yacht Club Keelboat Regatta has been shortened to Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd June. By doing this the club can run the best possible regatta whilst allowing competitors to take part in the Celebration River Pageant.
The Dragon one design class will race up to four Windward Leeward races on the Thursday and Friday with the first start at 10 minutes after the White Sails Cruiser Class.
It’s not just fun afloat. There is a full social programme planned including an open air theatre show by the Handlebards on the Thursday Evening and a prizegiving party on the Friday evening.
