    Here is a letter from Penny Jolley the Secretary of the Brixham Heritage Regatta about this years Regatta.

    "Happy New Year!

    I am delighted to inform you that the entry form and details of this year's Brixham Heritage Regatta are now available on the website (

    We shall have a new trophy this year, a beautiful engraved Coronation Challenge Cup - one of our 'bygones' being upcycled (I am sure the King would approve!).  This will be awarded to the best newcomer; so please do pass on information about the regatta to anyone you know who might qualify, as well as the usual entries. 

    Bear in mind that ANY boat over 30 years is eligible for entry.  Since the departure of Trinity Sailing and the loss of Golden Vanity, Leader and Provident we are also very keen to attract more traditional craft too.  Although we do have Provident's 100th birthday party to look forward to and put on our planners (25th-26th May 2024).

    This office will be closed until 18th February; if there is no acknowledgement for your entry please don't worry; I will sort them out towards the end of that month.

    Brixham Heritage Regatta"

    Voici une lettre de Penny Jolley, secrétaire de la Brixham Heritage Regatta, au sujet de cette édition.

    Nous sommes entrés dans notre bateau Fly à La Semaine du Golfe Du Morbihan (15 au 21 mai) et prévoyons de partir et de naviguer vers Brixham directement après.

    Bonne année!

    Je suis ravi de vous informer que le formulaire d’inscription et les détails de la Brixham Heritage Regatta de cette année sont maintenant disponibles sur le site (

    Nous aurons un nouveau trophée cette année, une belle Coronation Challenge Cup gravée - l’un de nos 'bygones' étant upcycled (je suis sûr que le roi approuverait!). Ceci sera attribué au meilleur nouveau venu; donc s’il vous plaît ne transmettre des informations sur la régate à toute personne que vous connaissez qui pourrait se qualifier, ainsi que les inscriptions habituelles. Gardez à l’esprit que TOUT bateau de plus de 30 ans est admissible à l’entrée. 

    Depuis le départ de Trinity Sailing et la perte de Golden Vanity, Leader et Provident, nous sommes également très désireux d’attirer des métiers plus traditionnels. Bien que nous ayons la fête du 100e anniversaire de Provident à attendre et à mettre sur nos planificateurs (25‑26 mai 2024).

    Ce bureau sera fermé jusqu’au 18 février; s’il n’y a pas d’accusé de réception pour votre participation, ne vous inquiétez pas; je les trierai vers la fin du mois.

    Penny Jolley

    Secrétaire Régate Brixham Heritage

    We have entered our boat Fly in La Semaine du Golfe Du Morbihan (15 to 21 May) and plan to leave and sail to Brixham directly afterwards.

    Sounds like fun.  We just had our Tall Ships Regatta, here in Northland, NZ.  I posted a little about it, and it's still in 'Recent Posts'.  We got great publicity from the local rag!

    This YouTube video suggests that at least 4 junk rigs were at the Brixham Heritage Regatta.

    I recognised Fly and Krka but who were the other two??
