3) “The Windsport Multihull regatta week”
Date 22-26th July – NOTE. This multihull regatta week follows on from the Dart18 UKIDA GP5 / SW championships event.
Ok this is a first for Windsport a whole week of messing about on the water in anything with more than one hull! The emphasis is on REGATTA not championship racing.
Open to all types of beach launched multihull with a variety of on and off water activities, this really is a family style week. This combo regatta week has a pinch of regatta racing, harbour challenges, coastal raids and time to do activities other than sailing. All styles of beach catamaran / trimaran are welcome: fun cats, performance cats, high performance cats and foilers. Many of the locations we sail too are accessible by local passenger ferry or car for non-sailors, so we can all meet up for a pint and a pasty!
Camping and motorhome parking is available on location and for those who have not visited Windsport Falmouth before you are in for a treat with the focus on Fun, Relaxed, Enjoyment for the whole of your party.
Windsport is keen to ensure we are not over stretched so regatta entries are limited to under 40 boats. If you are keen to join in this unique multihull regatta register your interest by email early with Windsport and we will make sure you get priority event information before it goes public.
