Sailing is right at the heart of the Regatta.  For the yacht racing we pay a special tribute to the wonderfully distinctive and traditional Old Gaffers & XOD classes. Other classes are IRC .880+ and Yachts IRC .879 and below. Racing is on Sunday morning in the Solent. 
All classes of dinghies are welcome. Racing starts at 10.30am on Saturday from Brooklands Pile on the River Hamble.

ANYONE CAN ENTER – SIMPLY COMPLETE AN ENTRY FORM
Sailing instructions and course cards will be available to download in August or can be collected in person from the Elephant Boatyard.
Prize-giving and refreshments will be on race day at 16.30 in the Elephant Boatyard. All competitors are welcome.

OLD GAFFERS

The Regatta has 21 trophies to present: 18 for sailing, 3 for rowing and one for the best dressed yacht. Some are over 75 years old and the Victor Ludorum trophy (presented for the best overall rowing performance) has a silver hallmark of 1867.

Perhaps the most interesting feature of the trophies are the names inscribed on them – a long list of names from the past including several British Olympic medallists.  We pay tribute to all of those who have contributed to the success of past Regattas, and here’s to many more years to come!

Many of the trophies were presented by local supporters of the regatta, including The Alwyn Foulkes and J A Foulkes (father and uncle of Glyn). Among the other grand trophies were those presented by Monty Bradshaw, F Deacon, Stanley Steele, Don Smy and the Montefiore family. The boatyard sheave, the Miles Arnott and Geoff Pack trophies were all made by the Elephant Boatyard.
