Taittinger RSYC Regatta 2017

The Western Solent's most relaxed and enjoyable Regatta

Sponsored by Champagne Taittinger in association with Charles Stanley.

 

Now in its tenth year, the Taittinger Royal Solent Regatta is a firm favourite amongst the Solent yachting fraternity. James Meaning, last year's overall winner in XOD Gleam had this to say:

"Today was just brilliant and the whole Regatta has been great. The Race Committee were amazing getting two races in on Saturday in such fickle conditions.178 entries in 16 classes enjoyed two days of high-class racing and entertainment." 

This year's Regatta will commence with the ever popular Taittinger Champagne Reception, which gets things going with a bang on Friday evening and Saturday's racing is followed by the legendary Towers Party. 

The Clubhouse is open to all competitors from breakfast until late and remains open through Sunday afternoon after the prize giving.
