RANSA holds its annual regatta in support of the Sir David Martin Foundation, on the second Sunday in February each year. It is open to any mono-hull yacht. The regatta includes an inter-club competition for the Admiral’s Trophy and the best-sailed club on the harbour. Skippers nominate the club for which they wish to sail for the allocation of points towards the competition. After the Regatta there is always a great gathering back at the Club where prizes are awarded, live music to add to the festive occasion, and on water stories of the race are re-told or re-lived, regardless of the exact accuracy. It is an event not to be missed and you should be marking in your sailing calendar already.
