Following a detailed survey of competitors from Largs Regatta Week 2017 there have been major changes made to revive the format of this popular annual event.

For 2018 Largs Regatta Week will now be reformatted and shortened to become LARGS REGATTA FESTIVAL which will run over the August Bank Holiday weekend (24 – 27 August). 

Largs Regatta Festival will commence on Friday evening of 24 August, with three days of racing over the weekend including the unique and infamous Round Cumbraes Race on the Sunday. Racing culminates on the Monday with the overall championship decided, followed by prize giving.

All racing will be open to serious racers, keen club racers, white sail cruisers and dinghies. Largs Yacht Haven based sail makers, Saturn Sails, have come on board as race sponsors.

Alongside the sailing regatta there will be a greatly enhanced programme of live music throughout the weekend in the regatta marquee thanks to new event sponsors, Scotts Largs and Buzzworks Holdings. 

With their links to boutique distillers, designer breweries and quality entertainment this should prove very popular to both visitors and sailors alike. 

The music festival ashore will be open to the public and will certainly provide a lively welcome to sailors after a day on the water.

The traditional Scottish Two Handed Race will take place the following weekend, Saturday 1st September, alongside the Firth of Clyde Coastal Rowing Club Youth Regatta.

Put the dates in your diary – 24 – 27 August 2018 – and watch this space for lots more news to come on the event schedule. This Festival is breathing new life into Clyde racing!
