The 2018 Regattas are now over after 2 weeks of largely good weather and great sailing. Nearly 100 boats took part and Beaumaris Town Regatta (Round Puffin Island) attracted 68 entries.

The 2019 Regattas will be raced over the fortnight from Monday 5th August and Saturday 17th August. The sailing takes place on the Menai Strait, a narrow stretch of water separating Anglesey from mainland North Wales. The majority of the boats racing are classic boats such as the Fife OD, the Mersey Mylne OD, and the Conway OD. We also welcome Cruisers and Dinghies in handicap fleets. The event is largely based at Beaumaris towards the Northern end of the Strait but other venues along the Strait are included right up to Caernarfon towards the Southern end.

The regattas include the iconic races from Beaumaris to Caernarfon through the Swellies and round Puffin Island.

This website should hold all the information necessary for you to get an idea of the regattas. For more details contact us at secretary@menaistraitregattas.org.uk.
