Stromness Regatta

The Stromness Regatta has been rescheduled and will now take place on Saturday, 14 August 2021, weather permitting.

The Scottish Government is due to announce shortly what changes will be made in relation to COVID-19 prevention regulations after 8 August 2021 but for the moment we are sticking to the current guidance.  As this is an 'organised' event, we are required to take names and contact numbers for everyone involved in the event whether sailing or carrying out supporting roles and to keep that information for 21 days.  In relation to this and other COVID-19 Protection guidance measures for the event please follow this link and please help us by complying with the guidelines:
