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.

Regatta dates for 2015: 11th-12th July.

Organising club for 2015: Starcross Yacht Club
