Kip Regatta 2022

Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th May

Kip Regatta, the first ‘Major’ of the Scottish racing calendar, takes to the Clyde from Kip Marina on Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th May, offering the perfect start to sailing in Scotland or fine tuning your boat and crew for the forthcoming season.

With expert race management from Royal Western Yacht Club ensuring closely fought contests across the classes for IRC, CYCA and the usual array of one designs – Sigma 33, Sonata, Etchells and 707’s etc., and a dedicated Sports Boats section increasing the excitement and appeal of this already well supported season opener.

Already a designated event as part of Inverclyde’s ‘Meliora Festival’, Kip Regatta is delighted to announce major prize sponsors RYA Scotland who will offer Class Prizes and an Overall Winner Prize that complements the prestigious silverware provide by race organisers Royal Western Yacht Club. We also welcome our other prize sponsors Stewart Brewing and Tunnocks who will ensure the winning boats are well rewarded.

On shore, a full programme of events including the famous Saturday night Shore Party at The Chartroom with live music into the small hours featuring fine craft beers from Stewart Brewing, a take away breakfast service from Café Riva on Sunday to cure any ills, and a prize giving ceremony on Sunday afternoon to recognise the winners.

Each year Kip Regatta attracts a growing number of first-time entries and 2022, as a return to normality, is the perfect year to ‘do the West Coast’ and enjoy the world class sailing waters of the Clyde for yourself.

For entrants Kip Marina provides a special reduced Regatta Rate for berthing, hoists or launching – for full details on these email
