Each Autumn all the yachts in our fleet are available to compete in the hire boat sailing regatta on Barton Broad sponsored by Waterways Holidays.

Over 30 yachts take part in this event which includes a series of races in the beautiful surroundings of Barton Broad and a programme of social events each evening, culminating in the Regatta dinner and prize-giving.

The regatta is a long established and highly popular event, providing the opportunity for competitive sailing and great company.
The images below show some of the fantastic sailing you could be part of. Check to see which craft have availability for the dates of the regatta.
The Charter Yacht Regatta takes place every year and competitors hire their boat for the week covering the regatta period to enjoy a few days practice before the racing plus a little gentle sailing to wind down afterwards. A prize giving dinner is held on the Thursday of the racing week plus there are numerous other fun social events throughout the Regatta week.
