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 – 2019 saw the largest ever turnout, plus an incorporated National Championships for the RS Vareo 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.

This year, we have partnered with RestartSailing to run an event that is safe, legal, considerate and conservative. The regatta is also part of the Great British Sailing Challenge – with GPS tracking, supplied by SailRacer, included for all competitors. POSH 2021 has already been adopted by many fleets as an official class open meeting, and is being supported by several others.

POSH 2021 is kindly sponsored by Sailing Chandlery.
