Barton Regatta

Each Autumn all the yachts in our fleet are available to compete in the hire boat sailing regatta on Barton Broad sponsored by Waterways Holidays.

The dates of the regatta in 2016 are 7th to 14th of October.

Over 30 yachts take part in this event which includes a series of races in the beautiful surroundings of Barton Broad and a programme of social events each evening, culminating in the Regatta dinner and prize-giving.

We highly recommend reading the article from the Practical Boat Owner September 2011 magazine on the Barton Broad Regatta for a greater perspective on this unique event.

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. Please send a booking request to see if dates are available, or contact us directly. Further pictures can be found on flickr.
