The 76th RA Keelboat Regatta was held 6-7 Jul 22 at Sea View Yacht Club (SVYC), Seaview, Isle of Wight. The Regatta is open to all serving members of the Regiment and all members of the RAYC. The aim of this Regatta was to encourage Units and RAYC members to participate in keelboat sailing in a competitive and potentially challenging environment, and to continue our long-lasting relationship with SVYC.
The conditions over the two days were variable on both days, with a brisk wind in the afternoon of the first day, and again on the morning of the second day. Four regular crews (16 Regt RA, 103 Regt RA, NRHQ RA and AISTC(S), and three veteran crews battled round courses set by the Seaview Yacht Club. A group of Young Officers from the YO's Course at Larkhill were crews for the veterans and received a spirited induction to sailing. Carol Dutton who had kindly sponsored the event gave out trophies on the second day. The results are as follows:
103 Regt RA receive the Commodore's Cup
NRHQ receive the Crane-Mills Cup
