The Dartmouth Classics consists of two days of racing for classic yachts and dayboats (over 5.4 metres LOD) held in June or July each year. Racing takes place in Start Bay.
The event is alternately organised by the Royal Dart Yacht Club (RDYC) and the Classic Channel Regatta Ltd (CCR).
When run by the RDYC the Dartmouth Classics is a weekend event and is a standalone regatta. When run by the CCR it is part of the Classic Channel Regatta and is timed to allow the CCR to finish in Paimpol when the tides allow berthing for a fleet of up to 100 yachts.
In 2024 the Dartmouth Classics will take place on Thursday 18th and Friday 19th July 2024. The event is part of the Classic Channel Regatta.
