The River Exe Regatta

Welcome to the River Exe Regatta, an annual celebration of sailing held over a summer weekend on the waters of the River Exe estuary, in beautiful south Devon.

Every summer the four sailing clubs that lie scattered around the shores of this stunning stretch of water come together in the River Exe Regatta, each club taking it in turns to host and organise the event.

Most of the regatta revolves around dinghy racing, though in most years there is also cruiser racing offshore. Onshore, there is a social programme with parties on Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon, held at the host club.

Everyone and anyone who enjoys messing about in boats is welcome, so we hope you will enjoy this website, and then come along to the fun of the regatta.

The 2016 regatta is being hosted by Lympstone Sailing Club, over the weekend of 16th and 17th July 2016. Details of the 2016 event are coming together: click on the links in the top menu bar to find out more.

The regatta Notice of Race, to announce the main plans, will be published here in early May. Entries for all competitors will open shortly after that.


Entries open for 2016 in early May!

The 2016 Exe Regatta will take place over the weekend of 16/17 July with racing for cruisers, dinghies and multi-hull boats.

In 2015, over 80 boats took part from local clubs based on the Exe and from further afield around the southwest. To see images of the event's sailing, click on the 'GALLERY' link in the navigation bar above and select 'Regatta 2015 photos'.


To encourage 'early bird' entries, we'll be running a number of special offers and competitions once entries open. Between May 1st and 31st, Exe Sails will be offering all sorts of goodies so make sure you get your entry in before May 31st. In addition, entries received before mid June will attract a discounted entry fee.
