"BTR 2022 will see excellent race management under the race Officer control of Con Murphy and his team. This coupled with the consistent sea and wind conditions off Bangor will provide all the ingredients for some fantastic racing. Of course, off the water RUYC and Bangor will not be found wanting!”

“Racing at Bangor Town Regatta offers a fair race track with more space and reduced tide influence across all three race courses. Experienced race management back up with great shore facilities and entertainment BTR 2022 provides the perfect atmosphere to relax after racing.”
