With high performance racing fleets such as the Performance 40, Cape 31 and HP30's travelling to Poole, the regatta has cemented itself as one of the not to be missed, premier UK yacht racing events, whilst also remaining a down to earth and accessible weekend of action for everyone who enjoys serious, but friendly competition. The fantastic post racing socials hosted by the welcoming combined yacht clubs of Poole, may also hold slight appeal!

With only four months to go and 2022 calendars now on the wall, get in quickly and mark the 30th April - 2nd May as "Racing at The International Paint Poole Regatta" now.
