The 168th Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta takes place from the 30th August to 1st September 2012.
The first recorded competitive regatta was held on the river Dart at Dartmouth in 1822. Other informal regattas were held in some of the following years leading to the establishment of Dartmouth Regatta in 1834. The regatta later became known as the Port of Dartmouth Regatta and in 1856 the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta.
The Regatta is based around a programme of rowing and sailing events, but also incorporates a busy programme of activities including air displays, fireworks, a large fair, and many other smaller events that happen in and around the town centre.
Nearly 100,000 people visit Dartmouth during the Regatta period, swelling the town’s population of approximately 6,000 and making Dartmouth Regatta one of the largest public events in the South West, and the second largest Regatta after Cowes Week.
