Comments from previous regatta entrants:

“I never got around to thanking you personally for a superb regatta last year. As you may know we followed on immediately with the Panerai [Cowes] regatta and then the RYS bicentenary and your regatta was by far and away the most enjoyable with entry into Paimpol being one of the best and most memorable experiences I’ve ever had.”  Gulvain – 2015

“Thank you very much from all on Tamarind for this years regatta , everyone enjoyed themselves tremendously, the organisation was fantastic and we are already planning how to win the next dance classique!”  Tamarind – 2015.

“Thank you for a wonderful regatta – I am sorry we could not stay for prizegiving, but the next regatta calls! – it will be hard though to match the wonderful week of racing we have had. Thank you once again for all the hard work which goes into putting on an event like this for the pleasure of so many crews.”  Kelpie – 2015

“Just a quick note to thank you all very much indeed for organising another brilliant event. The arrival into Paimpol was great fun and it was lovely to see beautiful yachts being appreciated.”  Gulliver of Southampton – 2015

“Please accept the thanks of the Betty Alans for the extraordinary job you and your colleagues did on the organisation of the Channel Regatta. As newbies it struck us that you found the right balance of organisation and improvisation, so it was both relaxed and reassuring, and of course to have such diversity of sailing in one week was wonderful.”  Betty Alan – 2015

“A very big thank you, once again, from all of us on board Cervantes for all your hard work organising another memorable Classic Channel Regatta. It really was a fantastic edition.”  Cervantes IV – 2015

“Thank you for an amazing regatta …. It is a huge privilege to come and sail with you and the amazing people and their boats… and applaud you and the team for everything you do. The administration is seamless, the locations are superb and the whole thing is just right…. We are already planning to get back for the regatta in 2015.” Wishstream 2013

“Quite unlike the atmosphere at any other regatta – Fantastic.” Mikara 2013

“Absolutely worth sailing 700 miles against the wind [from Holland] to get to.” Marianna 2013
