Paignton Sailing Club wanted to create an iconic sailing event, that everyone would be talking about and saying “hey are you going to this”. This is how PODD came about as well as our POSH event. In the South West area there didn’t seem to be a single event just for Double Handed Dinghies.
The regatta will take place over two days, with three races scheduled each day. There is an early entry fee, see Notice of Race on for more details. After racing has finished for the day the club bar will be open, perfect time to catch up on the days racing and check out the results.
Fleets that have joined PODD previously include Fireball and Albacore.
It is possible to launch at any tide state into the sheltered yet challenging waters of Torbay. There is easy access to the Club with free parking within a few minutes of the Club. Paignton Sailing Club are renowned for hosting several large Regattas including Laser World Qualifiers, Topper events, Scorpions nationals to name but a few.
Entries are capped at 120 boats in fear of having too many boats arrive! A pre-entry system will soon be online. So if you have a double handed dinghy and fancy taking part in this prestigious event then email Paignton Sailing Club at
