Babbacombe Regatta

****This event has now past but please check back spring 2018 to find out the dates of our 192nd Babbacombe Regatta**** 

Join us for our 191st Babbacombe Regatta supported by Torquay Real Estate. 

Torquay Regatta

We warmly welcome visitors to our regattas and try our best to deliver a great mix of sailing and social events.

The earliest recorded Babbacombe Regatta was in 1820 when it was won by Mr T Cary. These first Regattas were modest affairs and attracted mostly local sailors and crew. However the Regatta assumed more importance when a committee was set up in 1870. Their enthusiasm soon ensured that the Babbacombe Regatta became an essential part of Torbay’s sailing calendar. The Committee meets annually to ensure the continued success of this two day event.
