Taittinger regatta, Yarmouth

Seriously fun racing with lots of bubbly!

Taittinger Regatta 2018

Organised by the Royal Solent Yacht Club, 2018 will see the sixth edition of the racing weekend. Held over two days, there are three or four inshore races over two days, with a champagne reception on Friday. Which we cannot possibly miss! We will be bringing Intuition to the party, our Reflex 38, which is a proven and very exciting racer. Come and join in, you’ll love it.

Dates: 20 – 22 July, 2018

Individual places are available on our race-ready super-tuned uber-fast racing machine – First 40, Skylander!

Plan of action

Friday, 20th July, 10:00 Arrival and training day. Mooring in Yarmouth, for a Champagne Reception
Saturday, 21 th of July RACE, RACE, RACE!
Sunday, 22nd of July Race and Prize giving ceremony
Sunday, 22nd of July, Evening Depart for Mercury Yacht Harbour, arrival around 8pm.

What is it all about?

Some exciting IRC racing in the Western Solent, something that we don’t have enough of, being based in the Central Solent, and it makes for some very competitive bunch. It’s all quite tactical, and it’s not that easy to beat the local crowd, so we’ll have to work very hard!

Intuition’s sistership, Puma, won Taittinger in 2014, so it’s up for grabs!

I came for a 5 days course and it was freeezing! I did come in February though, so serves me right. There was a proper heater onboard though, so we we fine. The course structure was excellent, Aubrey [instructor] really knew his stuff and it was fun. Lots of mooring, which is what I was after. Feel much more confident now, and thanks for the pies, v. good 🙂

Staying in a different marina every night was the highlight for me. This is what cruising is about, I guess, so not coming back to Mercury was ideal, I got to know the Solent pretty well. Lee [instructor] was good at stepping back and letting us do it ourselves, which was very useful. Thanks again, and see you next year!

Hi guys, just a quick note to say THANKS! I was really nervous, but it was all good in the end. We just practiced every day and little by little I figured it out, I can moor! Still a little nervous, but the basics are there now, I understand what needs to be done. I’ll come back for the mile building, I think. All in all, the course was well structured, very much hands on and I liked the boat, very plush :J Thanks for a great week!
