This year’s Morgan Cup race will again finish in the beautiful harbour of Dartmouth and, so as not to reproduce another ‘Myth of Malham’ race course, some virtual waypoints will likely be used to provide some variety and different tactical challenges. One of the jewels in the crown among West Country harbours, Dartmouth, plus Kingswear opposite, and the always welcoming Royal Dart Yacht Club make this a popular sailing destination.
This is an adventurous sailing trip, on an offshore race prepared yacht – so be prepared for some fast and exciting sailing…

What to Expect
Professional InstructionOur Skippers are experienced instructors that make every crew member feel welcome and tailor their delivery to the experience and style of the crew
Competitive boatAlthough the taking part is often fun, we believe the full experience comes from pushing ourselves to the max and competing with other boats on the water with a view to win
High safety standardsMaintaining and equipping a yacht to a high standard is not an easy task. No expense is spared in ensuring the best equipment is selected and repairs are undertaken quickly and proficiently.
No PassengersAlthough we are happy to provide sight seeing adventures, this experience is a regatta so you can expect to be actively involved in sailing the boat, there isn't any rail meat on our boats.
