This one didn't come off in 2016, largely due to other events competing for attention. It would be nice to resurrect it for 2017, this is the introduction posted last time:
The Dartmouth Regatta takes place annually in late August. The River Dart is very attractive and navigable up to Totnes and the South Devon coast has many nearby sailing destinations. It is possible to launch from a narrow slipway in town or there is also better launching facilities just up river at Blackness Marine or one of the other nearby ports like Brixham.
The regatta will be on 24-26 August, which is the end of the week (thu-sat) before the bank holiday. So maybe run the event over that weekend and take in the bank holiday Monday, with scope for a longer stay if people wish.
Bill Hunt (who lives locally) offered to organise in 2016 - Bill, are you up for it this time? If so, what dates would you favour?
