Welcome to The 2017 Menai Strait Regattas. There are just days until the first regatta!!

This year the Regattas are being raced over the fortnight from Sunday 23rd July and Friday 4th 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 but 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.

The Regattas Commitee would like to offer a BIG THANK YOU to HEMPEL for agreeing to be our main sponsor again in 2017. We look forward to welcoming new sponsors for the 2017 Menai Strait Regattas.
