Welcome to the Classic Channel Regatta – a unique week long international event with its own distinctive and varied blend of racing round the cans at Dartmouth, passage racing across the Channel, and racing round an island in Brittany – all with a lively and informal programme ashore which brings together a wonderful gathering of boats and crews.

The regatta is biennial and runs for a week in July. It starts with two days of racing at Dartmouth followed by the Classic Channel Race to Paimpol where there is rest day and a race around the Ile de Brehat. Then a passage race takes the fleet to Guernsey where the regatta finishes with the Round Sark Classic Race – all backed up with a programme of informal social events ashore.

The regatta calls at three of the finest ports in the western English Channel, each providing a beautiful backdrop with its own West Country, Channel Islands or Breton ambiance. The atmosphere in port is strictly informal, bringing together a splendid collection of classic yachts and their crews from Britain, France, Belgium, Holland and further afield.
