Arnside Classic Boat Regatta

Arnside Classic Boat Regatta

Next Date

Arnside has a long sailing history with the Victorians holding regattas here, the village’s first regatta was held in 1852. Crossfields built Morecambe Bay Prawners, yachts and other boats in the village from the 1840s to 1940s, including Arthur Ransome’s Swallow and Coch-y-bonddhu.

Sailing times are: Friday – 12 noon to 2pm, and Saturday – 12.30pm to 2.30 pm. Boat launching will be by Ashmeadow.

Bigger sea going boats who are brave enough to come up in the estuary are also welcomed – in 2022, ‘Hearts of Oak’, a 34 foot Morecambe Bay Prawner came up for the event.

This annual event is held in partnership with the OGA – the association for gaff rig sailing for trailer-able traditional boats, with traditional boats sailing in the estuary.

In 2024 we are hoping to host a Regatta Ball on the Saturday evening. There is an American Folk Duo “Those Folks” playing in the Clubhouse on Friday night.

The price to bring a boat is £15. To book for the 2024 Regatta, click here,

This is a recurring event. Repeating every day.
