A regatta is a series of boat races. The term comes from the Venetian-Italian language regatta meaning “contest”. Although regattas are typically amateur competitions, they are typically organised events, but they may be quite amateur.
The Regatta season starts with the Port of Plymouth Regatta (10-12th July), Salcombe Town Regatta (1st – 8th August 2020), Cowes Week (Sat, 8 Aug – Sat, 15 Aug) and the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta (Sat, 22 Aug – Sat, 27 Aug).
