The International Paint Poole Regatta 2020 is developing to be the biggest event yet, with the organisers pleased to announce that round two of the inaugural IC37 Championship will be hosted over the weekend. The latest high profile racing class joins the Fast 40+ fleet in making Poole Bay a key location in their racing schedule.

Also confirmed are the J80, J24, HP30 and VPRS National Championships alongside the 2.4mR Tidal National Championship, the IRC Southern Area Championship and the Shrimper Southern Championship. There will be a lot of silverware on offer.

All well-known classes will have their own starts at Poole and discussions are ongoing with several to add to the championship bonanza already signed to race next May.

More and more competitive yacht owners and crew are committing to race at Poole because of the great reputation gained for its multiple courses carefully crafted for each class, competitive starts to ensure thrilling racing, fantastic facilities within the yacht clubs of Poole, very experienced race management and all topped off with a full on social scene post racing every day.

With only nine months to go ensure the 23 - 25 May 2020 is blocked out in your diary as the International Paint Poole Regatta returns for three days of unmissable racing and social events in picturesque Dorset, UK.

Whatever class you race, there is a competitive start for you at the International Paint Poole Regatta 2020. For more information visit pooleregatta.co.uk or follow us on facebook @pooleregatta.
