Competitive and fun events will be organised on the River Dart during Mayflower Week, 30 Aug-5 Sep 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.

Trawler Race – involving the fleet of Brixham trawlers and other classic sailing craft
“White sails” race in Start Bay
