Sailing Regatta

 

The term “regatta” usually describes a boat race or series of boat races for human-powered craft such as rowing or sailing boats, although the term is sometimes extended to include motor-powered boats. More often than not, a regatta is named after the venue where it takes place, a typical example being the most prestigious British event, the Henley Royal Regatta, held annually at Henley on the River Thames. Or the world’s oldest – Cowes Week – first held in 1826 on the Solent, a difficult stretch of water between the south coast of England and the Isle of Wight. Cowes Week is organized from the small town of Cowes on the Isle of Wight.

Regattas are split into races of various categories depending on the type and class of boat. The events almost always include a fringe programme with festivities surrounding the various races and are exciting, colourful occasions, full of fun and camaraderie despite being extremely competitive with highly coveted trophies.
