FOLLOWING on from a survey of 2018 competitors, the organisers of Largs Regatta Festival have made some improvements to their popular end of summer regatta.

The 2019 event will take place from 23-25 August at Largs Yacht Haven with racing being run over Saturday and Sunday in the Clyde Estuary. The traditional Round Cumbraes Race will be enhanced with a pre-round the buoys race followed by Round the Islands creating a more meaningful day of racing, all run jointly by Largs Sailing Club and Fairlie Yacht Club.

Scotts Largs, the onsite restaurant and bar at the 700 berth marina, continue as shoreside sponsors with an action packed live music programme in the planning. On water sponsors, Saturn Sails, continue to support both the dinghy and keelboat racing and will open the festival with their legendary sail loft party on the Friday evening.
