Starcross Junior Regatta - entries now open...

 

When is it?

Saturday 10th - Tuesday 13th August 2024

What's it all about?

Four days of racing and fun on the River Exe. Not to be missed!
This is what it was like in 2023.

Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions 

Are available here.

The Competitors .. .

All children from age 8 on April 1 to age 18 on 31 August, sailing a boat of PY 1136 and above (i.e. an Aero 5 and anything slower). Club boats are available for SYC members.

In previous years we have had entries from sailors aged 8 right up 18, and nearly 50 boats.


The Racing .. .

Split into Gold and Silver fleets - the Silver fleet has coaches in RIBs to provide support and encouragement for those new to racing and is suitable for everybody who is Stage 2-3 standard or above. 
The Gold Fleet is more competitive (and lots of fun as well!). 

More details about the format of racing are in the Notice of Race above.

The Extras .. .

It's not all about the racing! Fun and games, on and off the water, will be organised around the racing times. In previous years we've had Tug of War, water fights, an afternoon's trip to the beach at Dawlish Warren for sandcastle building, and "climb a Topper mast".

Food will be available all weekend, with a big party on Saturday evening. The bar does a roaring trade for parents...

Camping is available throughout the Regatta, and loads of people camp on the Saturday night.

The Prizes .. .

Watch this space. There will be lots..... 
We have some very generous sponsors.
