About the Event

From the Paignton Website:

Paignton Open for Single Handers (POSH) was founded in 2012 as a  replacement for our Spring Regatta. This unique format appeals to a  range of high-performance single-handed dinghies and has been adopted by  many as a class open meeting. The regatta has gone from strength to  strength with turnouts of around 100 boats with many classes  incorporating their UK National Championships. This has included the RS  Vereo class and more recently the Byte class.

Paignton Sailing Club is renowned for hosting high profile events  with an enviable record, superb facilities and equipment, and a  world-class Race Management team. The club itself is located on the  Paignton Harbour and has plenty of parking within walking distance. It  is only a short distance away from Paignton beach, from where the  dinghies will be launched, allowing us to launch during any tide state  into the sheltered waters of Tor Bay.

POSH is kindly sponsored by Sailing Chandlery.
