The Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta

Written by The Blueriver Cottages Team on

Dartmouth is a hive of activity this week gearing up for one of the biggest events of the year…The Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta!

Time for a history lesson…

Dartmouth’s first official recorded regatta was in 1822, there were 3 sailing boats, 1 gig race and a military band played at the Dartmouth Castle.

34 years later…

In 1856 Queen Victoria, Prince Albert and The Prince of Wales attended the Dartmouth Regatta and this royal gathering at the event changed the name forever! Hence The Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta!

Now 159 years later…

In 2015 The Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta is as big as ever!

The events begin to unfold from the 22nd August for 1 whole week!

There are a total of 124 events taking place so you, friends, family, everyone will always have something to see and take part in throughout the week.

This event should definitely be tickling your fancy and if this is the case we still have a few properties left for you to book for the whole week!

Even extend your holiday into the bank holiday Monday to enjoy the relaxing calm after the eventful week before!
