There will be a series of maritime events to commemorate the significant seafaring achievement of the Mayflower voyage.
River Based Events
Competitive and fun events will be organised on the River Dart throughout 2020.
These will include water-borne races and regatta events, involving all sailing and rowing clubs on the river; any visiting yachtsmen will be welcome to take part.
Visits by warships, tall ships, yachts and a Mayflower replica are being arranged, with tours of ships for members of the public and selected river trip.
Mayflower Autonomous Research Ship
We expect the "Mayflower Autonomous Research Ship" to visit Dartmouth during the summer of 2020.
“MARS” is an unmanned vessel which will cross the Atlantic from Plymouth UK to Plymouth USA in 2020, undertaking scientific and technology research tasks. She is controlled from bases in UK, USA and Australia. We expect her to visit Dartmouth during the summer of 2020 before her departure. See www.mayflowerautoship.com for more information »
Grand Dart River Pageant
A Grand Dart River Pageant is planned for Sunday 30 August 2020 featuring the departure of the Mayflower and Speedwell for the New World.
All sailing clubs and boat owners on the River Dart and visiting yachtsmen will be invited to take part.
