Regatta Week

Come join our exclusive, one-off sailing regatta week at Levante Beach Resort on 17th June 2017. Designed for anyone interested in dinghy racing (with the emphasis on ‘racing’) be it to learn, improve or just looking to have some fun racing.

This week involves a variety of fun and competitive dinghy and multihull racing, coupled with race tuition, clinics and feedback sessions to boost your performance.

Racing for everyone

Aimed at all levels of competence, our intention is to introduce those that have never raced, to the techniques, tactics and rules of racing while keeping things simple and enjoyable. For more experienced sailors with some racing experience we look to stimulate and push you forward, looking at your boat handling, tactics and rig tuning to improve your positioning in the fleet.

Hints and tips from expert instructors 

Our team of expert instructors are on hand to assist and guide sailors from the beach to the start line and round the courses. They will also be on the water to give hints and tips in addition to the usual level of safety.

This fun week has an emphasis on taking part and enjoying the racing in a safe environment.
