This year’s Exe Regatta promises to be a fantastic weekend of activities including sailing, fishing, surf life-saving and cardboard boat building!
Book the dates now: June 8th/9th 2019
All five sailing clubs on the Exe Estuary are participating and each one has responsibility for a part of the Regatta. SYC is in charge of the overall organisation this year.
The Exe Regatta would not run without the active and generous support of our Gold sponsors, who this year are Tozer’s Solicitors, St Peter’s Preparatory School, Wilkinson Grant Estate Agents, Exe Sails and Covers and our Media Partners, Hedgerow Marketing.
