Looe Lugger Regatta

Fri, 5 Jul 19 - Sun, 7 Jul 19

Looe Lugger Regatta

The harbour and bay
PL13 1AA
5 Jul 2019 to 7 Jul 2019
This will be the 16th regatta and will mark 30 years of the current LOOE LUGGER REGATTA. So we hope you can all make it.

This bi-annual regatta in the busy seaside town of Looe is a celebration of the area’s fishing heritage. Traditional Luggers, two masted sailing boats once common along the coasts of England and France, head to the historical port for the regatta. Boats will arrive in Looe during the week leading up to the event depending on weather and tide conditions.

What happens?

During the regatta, the Luggers, some of which sail across the channel from France, compete in six races spread over the two days of competition. Around fifty boats, many of which were built more than a hundred years ago and lovingly restored by their owners, unfurl their sails in the harbour creating a magnificent spectacle.
