Welcome to
Bangor Regatta 2024

Event programme

And that's a wrap! Thank you to everyone involved.

Can't believe that we are now at the end of Bangor Regatta 2024. What an amazing four days. We finished off with more sailing on Sunday and then prize giving which was hosted by the lovely Denise Watson (U105) and Derek West as DJ. We had speeches from Vice Commodore Maurice Butler and Linda McAuley, who represented sponsor Cosimac. Congratulations to all the winners, and especially Kevin Byers and the crew of Signet who took the Bangor Town Cup. See you there. We'll upload photos from the prize giving to social media as soon as the dust settles :). A good round up of the regatta can be read here - thanks to Betty Armstrong from afloat.

All the racing photos from the event can be viewed here. Amazing work from Simon McIlwaine from Wavelength, who captured the boats and conditions beautifully.

If you still want to buy some merchandise to remember the event, go to our webpage on the Cosimac site to order now!

As always, follow us on Facebook - and our new Instagram account - to keep up to date with all our announcements. 

A big thank you to everyone who has come out to sail or help with the regatta! We are so appreciative!

Three in a Row for J109 Storm as Bangor Regatta 2024 Sees Thrilling Finish in Unpredictable Weather


In like a lion and out like a lamb is said to mean that the month of March should end with quiet weather compared to a lion. But this is June, and the Belfast Lough weather hasn't reached the lamb stage yet. With not much more than 15 knots of a breeze from the North at times, light weather aficionados would have liked today's racing in the final rounds of Bangor Regatta 2024, though flukey and with severe wind shifts.

Exciting Finale In Prospect at BR 2024 on Belfast Lough


Patience is a virtue they say and that is what was needed this morning when Belfast Lough was like a mirror and the Bangor Regatta fleet was motionless in the Marina. However word was that this forced stoppage was very much welcomed by some as after two days of hard racing and some revelling there were many tired bodies.


Kelly Family's J109 Storm Leads at Bangor Regatta 2024


Never mind what's going on elsewhere In Ireland this weekend; with Shania Twain in Belfast's Ormeau Park, Taylor Swift at the Aviva, the All-Ireland Quarter GAA Finals in Croke Park and the Foyle Maritime Festival in Derry, there was plenty of action in Belfast Lough with the second day of Bangor Regatta drawing the full 40 strong fleet racing in rather more encouraging conditions than yesterday.

The same strong winds that brought home many of the SSE Renewables Round Ireland fleet at pace down the Irish Sea to Wicklow arrived on time for the first day of the Bangor Regatta.
