Brixham Heritage Sailing Regatta

27 May 2017 - 28 May 2017

Trawler races have been held in Torbay for over two hundred years and in 1914, King George V presented the Perpetual Challenge Cup to be raced for by Brixham registered sailing trawlers over 40 tons. The cup was competed for until 1939 at the start of the second world war. Sailing tralwers were fairly quickly being retired and so racing did not resume after the war. However, Brixham Heritage Sailing Regatta was revived by enthusiasts in 1997. There are also fireworks in the harbour as part of the festivities.

This is a spectacular event and not to be missed.
