We welcome pre-registrations from owners of all eligible boats. We have set a maximum limit of 100 boats due to space constraints in the ports and to maintain the friendly atmosphere of the regatta.

Based on the numbers we had in 2013, 2015 and 2017, we may be oversubscribed in 2019, so:

  • We are provisionally limiting the number of boats in Class 1&2 (pre-1968) and Class 3&4 (1969-1974) to 50 boats in each.
  • Pre-registrations will be treated on a first come first served basis, but we will notify all previous entrants and offer them a last opportunity to pre-register for a confirmed place before the limit in either class is reached.
  • Once these limits have been reached, further pre-registrations will be put on a waiting list for places to become available.

You can pre-register at any time without commitment, so do it soon to secure a place in the regatta.

Boats are encouraged to enter for the whole regatta, but there will be registration facilities at St Peter Port and Paimpol for any boats wishing to join there.
