Southwold Model Yacht Regattas


general information

General Information

Sailors of any age and ability are most welcome to join in – there is no membership requirement to enter a regatta. For those interested in sailing who do not own their own boat, we have a number of excellent 'club' boats – particularly those suitable for children – which are specially for new sailors to borrow for a regatta. All club sailors are very friendly and will happily lend a hand to newcomers! If you are just curious to find out more, do drop by to ask a few questions and see what goes on.

The season contains a wide range of events, consisting of regular races for all boats, as well as additional cups and championships for which certain criteria apply (age of sailor, type of boat, etc…) Most regattas have a printed programme, entries for which are usually taken a day or two in advance, but if you are reading this on a regatta day and have not entered, please don't be put off – just come along and you can normally be added as a late entry without any trouble.

Prizes are in the form of tokens for 1st and 2nd place, which can be collected and exchanged for memorabilia and souvenirs, as well as some vouchers for gift and toy shops in the high street.

If you have questions on how to get involved, or to enter a regatta (which is appreciated in advance where possible), please contact the Commodore, Hugh Williamson, on 01502 722 319, or the Secretary, Anne Tracy, on 01315 527 615 or (during the regatta season) 01502 724 146.
