Running across the bank holiday weekend from 30th April to 2nd May, the International Paint Poole Regatta provides closely matched racing for multiple class fleets. Yachts will race over five courses out in Poole Bay and back in the harbour, followed with lively evening socials off the water. As well as Pip Hare being guest of honour at the official prize-giving on Monday 2nd May, there is a strong rumour that she will also be crewing in the regatta aboard one of the entries already signed up to race!

The regatta prize pot is sizeable, with Salcombe Distilling Co providing zesty, liquid prizes for all classes, alongside unique Poole Regatta trophies and other goodies. Spinlock will be providing prizes for the IRC fleets and IRC Southern Area Championship and Quay West Chandlery is supplying prizes for the Stoneways VPRS National Championship. The overall regatta winner will be presented with the legendary Canford Cup and for the first time in 2022 a Youth Trophy will also be up for grabs.

Berthing and launching facilities at Poole are excellent, with the well-respected combined yacht clubs of Poole working closely with the award-winning Poole Quay Yacht Haven to provide options for all sizes and shapes of keel boat. This makes it simple for both local boats and visitors from further afield to compete. Everyone is very welcome.
