Early bird entry for the International Paint Poole Regatta 2024 ends tomorrow at 23.59 on 13th April, so take advantage of the lowest entry fees and enter one of the South Coast's most popular regattas right now! The regatta runs from the 25th to 27th May 2024.

There are many reasons to enter Poole Regatta with closely matched racing across multiple classes, over five separate courses, all set against the spectacular backdrop of Old Harry Rocks and the Purbeck Hills being some of the most obvious! Add on the friendly atmosphere off the water at excellent socials, topped off with an RAF Memorial Flight flypast of two Spitfires and participation requires little thought. Enter now to benefit from savings of up to £100 off the standard entry fee.

The 2024 regatta will host the GBR IRC National Championship, being held outside of the Solent for the first time ever. Other class national and regional championships are also being held at Poole with the J24 Southern Area Nationals (a 2025 J24 Worlds Qualification Event), the Sonata Regional Championship, the J80 Nationals and the VPRS Southern Area Championship all taking place across the weekend.

For all those wishing to enter the IRC or VPRS/Regatta Handicap classes, a valid rating certificate is required. However, to openly welcome every size and shape of keel boat to compete at Poole Regatta, the VPRS class is offering a free regatta specific VPRS rating to those who would otherwise not be able to compete.

Poole Regatta is supported by a comprehensive group of sponsors with International Paint as title sponsors and backed by Haven Knox-Johnston, Poole Harbour Commissioners, Savills, Stoneways Marine, Salcome Distilling Co, Sandbanks Brewery and the Knot Agency.
