Each Autumn all the yachts in our fleet are available to compete in the Charter yacht sailing regatta on Barton Broad sponsored by Waterways Holidays and led by the Broads Sailing Family of yards.
The Charter Yacht Regatta is an eagerly awaited event each year for many of our competitors who hire yachts from the different sailing hire yards here on the Broads for a week to participate in racing. The yachts are separated out into fleets, handicaps allocated and the racing is usually exciting and highly competitive, whilst also being great fun. We usually have around 20 yachts take part in this event which includes a series of races in the beautiful surroundings of Barton Broad. There is also an evening programme of social events and on our final evening together a special Regatta dinner and prize-giving. Many trophies are up for grabs from Best Newcomer – to the ‘No Barry No!’ trophy!
The regatta is a long established and highly popular event, providing the opportunity for competitive sailing and great company. Participants require a reasonable level of sailing ability, with confidence to handle a yacht in company with others. The images below show some of the fantastic sailing you could be part of and enjoy. Find yourself a crew and book yourself a yacht!
The 2021 Barton Regatta is planned for the 9th – 16th October. Sadly due to COVID restrictions we were not able to go ahead last year – but we are planning to run this event this year if at all possible.
