POSH Regatta - Paignton, Devon, UK
Paignton Open for Single Handed Dinghies (POSH) Regatta
Paignton Sailing Club, Torbay, Devon
Torbay is one of the UK's premier Championship venues with a fantastic sailing area on the sheltered waters of the English Riviera which we enjoyed for our UK Nationals in both 2016 and 2022.
With the RS Aero fleet growing locally and in the southwest we look forward to visiting Paignton SC again for their popular single hander event. Entries are split into several fleets.
The date is a little later than usual this year to avoid clashing with King Charles III Coronation. PREVIEWOnline Entry, Notice of Race & Info:

The club is situated on Paignton Harbour and has plenty of parking within walking distance.
It is only a short walk from Paignton beach and the green, where boats are kept at main events.
Along the Esplanade are many excellent hotels and B&B’s which will be super convenient as your RS Aero will be parked opposite on the green. You can then change and shower in your hotel, just yards from your boat and a short walk to the sailing club and bar!
Locally, there are many large hotel chains, including Premier Inn (15 minutes walk) and Travelodge (10 minutes walk) and a huge variety of bed and breakfast, smaller sized hotels and campsites within the area.English Riviera Website
