Now in it's fourth year, Brightlingsea Youth Regatta is going from strength to strength.

This is an open event which brings together cadet sailors from across the region to compete in a three day fun regatta aimed at building racing confidence and friendships. With coaching support, racing development and a full social programme the event has something to offer cadets at every level. It also acts as the perfect feeder for BSC's famous Pyefleet Week which follows immediately on from this regatta.

Brightlingsea Youth Regatta 2019 will take place from Wednesday 7 to Friday 9 August and online entry for the event is now open. In particular entrants are asked to enter as soon as possible to ensure they will receive their Event Shirt for the start of the regatta. Each competitor should enter individually (if you are sailing a two person boat please ensure you quote the correct boat name and sail number on your entry so we can connect your entries afterwards). Additional social tickets and individual party tickets are also available for parents and siblings who are not competing.

Visit youthregatta.sailbrightlingsea.com to find out more and enter online.

This year we are proud to announce two sponsors, NEEB Holdings Ltd who have a long-standing history and relationship with Brightlingsea, and Rooster, whose name needs no introduction in the sailing community.

Rooster's Marketing Manager, Dave Treagust, said "I'm a firm believer that these grassroots events are just as important to the future of sailing as open and national events".

NEEB's joint Managing Directors, Roger and Raymond Raymond said "we are proud to be supporting such an important local event - we know that many individuals at the sailing club volunteer a lot of time to make these regattas a success."
