Bangor Town Regatta on Belfast Lough was a casualty of COVID-19 this year, (in fact the regatta would have been on the water last week), but a 2021 date has now been set for Thursday 24th till Sunday 27th June.
Building on the success of previous years and what is expected to be the biggest inshore sailing event in Northern Ireland next year, BTR21 will be run out of Bangor Marina and hosted by Royal Ulster Yacht Club in partnership with Ards and North Down Borough Council. Entry fees will be frozen at this year’s level.
Event Chairman, Gavin Watson said, “I am really looking forward to welcoming all sailing competitors and supporters to Bangor in June 2021. This will be four days of sailing and socialising to remember. The sailing waters off Bangor offer exciting opportunities to the very best sailors from around the UK and Ireland and coupled with the impressive backdrop of our host venue Royal Ulster Yacht Club, the event is shaping up to be a memorable occasion”.
Two separate race courses set in Belfast Lough will see competitors battle it out over four days of close racing across a variety of fleets. A highly experienced race team, including International Race Officer, Robin Gray.
