Welcome to
Bangor Town Regatta 2022


And That's a Wrap!

And that’s a wrap for Bangor Town Regatta 2022. Brilliant to have all the competitors and old friends come together again on the water (and off). The prize giving took place yesterday with a visit from Mayor Karen Douglas. And Tanya Martin, Managing Director of IQ&Co, was there to help give out the coveted trophies. Storm from Rush and Howth took the Winner of Class 2 and the overall regatta. Well done to all the winners, and competitors alike.

There are so many people to thank. Thanks to all our sponsors, especially title sponsor IQ&Co. The contribution from all our volunteers was immense! People taking time off work and giving their all, not only over the 4 days but in the weeks running up to it. A big thank you goes to all the kitchen and bar staff at the Royal Ulster Yacht Club – you guys were amazing making sure everyone was well fed and watered. Thanks to our Race Officers and all those on the committee boats. Bangor Marina needs a shout out too!

Andrew Gallagher from AquaVentus Photography took some amazing photos over the course of the event and you can see these at his website.

We hope everyone got back home safely and we look forward to welcoming you back to Bangor in 2024. Sail on. 

Breezy Single Race Brings Bangor Town Regatta to a Close


The southerly wind today (Sunday), Day 4 of Royal Ulster’s Bangor Town Regatta wasn’t quite as enthusiastic as it was yesterday when racing was cancelled, so Principal Race Officer Con Murphy got the fleet away in 25 knots gusting 30, for what turned out to be the final race of the series.

Day 3 of Bangor Town Regatta turned out to be one of those High Stool Days WM Nixon wrote about in Afloat’s Sailing on Saturdays.

Day 4 of Sailing at BTR


I have a very potent meteorology indicator in my back yard, it's called a brown bin. When it's upturned and sliding around skippers and crews head to the pub. That was certainly the case yesterday as I was walking my almost airborne little dog around Ballyholme Beach. 

Day 2 of Sailing at BTR


No problem getting the fleet underway yesterday morning in a brisk warm southerly. Conditions epitomized the reason why Belfast Lough has the reputation of being one of the finest locations for on the water competition in Ireland especially when the wind is in the south.

Day 1 of Sailing at BTR


Looking out on the water this morning thoughts were more sunscreen than spinnakers but in any case classes set off on a slow start on day one of the much anticipated Bangor Town Regatta.
