What is a regatta?



A regatta is a sports competition between several boats sailing in various races. The duration can be a few hours or up to several days.

On Sailwiz you can find regattas throughout the year, and we are constantly updating our activities to accommodate all the scheduled races of different yacht clubs on the calendar.

The route of sailing regattas is usually marked by buoys or beacons in the form of triangles. In keelboat (big boat) regattas, the routes are organized from port to port. The distance varies depending on the class and number of vessels, as well as the weather conditions.

Do I need to have experience to participate in a regatta?



No, you do not need experience, nor is it necessary to have knowledge of sailing! It is only required to have a desire for fun, a new experience, enjoy the sea, the sailing and meeting new people.

What clothes do I wear for a regatta?



Clothing should be light so you don't increase the weight of the boat. It should also be comfortable, waterproof so you don't get too wet, and you should wear white-soled non-slip shoes to prevent falls on deck.

What are the best known regattas in Spain?


- Volvo Ocean Race: The most famous transoceanic regatta, lasting nine months.

- Ruta de la Sal: Usually celebrated at Easter, it consists of different routes leaving from different places, but ending at the same point, the port of Ibiza.

- Regata Ophiusa: One of the most important offshore races held in the Mediterranean. The Regata Ophiusa starts in Sitges-Aiguadolç port and ends at the port of the Savina.

What types of regattas are there?


Dinghy sailing regatta: small boats, without motor propulsion and races near the coast.

Keelboat sailing regatta: larger sailboats and often with motor propulsion.

What are the rules of a regatta?


Normally the points system is used to settle the winning team of a regatta. The boat that wins is the one that accumulates fewer points on the legs (races held).

Scoring: in order of finish, the first position is given 1 point, the second position is given 2 points and so on.

Discard: once all the races are over, each boat can discard its worst finish in the competition.

The number of races in a regatta is usually 9, but some have 15 and others less.

Some sailing maneuvers performed in a regatta are:

- Tack: consists of turning the boat into the wind by pushing the tiller to leeward (away from the direction the wind is coming from). This then changes the sails and the crew members switch sides.

- Gybe: consists of pushing the tiller to windward (towards the wind) to change the sails. Then the crew members switch sides.

Dare to live a unique experience, participating in a regatta!
