Kip Regatta

Scotland's premier sailing event is here

Scotland's sailing event

What is it?

Kip Regatta is the first ‘Major’ of the Scottish racing calendar, taking place in the beautiful waters of the Clyde. The Regatta is held in collaboration with the Royal Western Yacht Club. With their experience in boat racing management, they will ensure closely fought contests across the classes.

This event offers the perfect start to sailing in Scotland or fine tuning your boat and crew for the forthcoming season, catering to many different levels of expertise and experience.

What can you expect?

The Regatta will provide customers with a relaxed way to get their boating fix before the season begins.

Even if you are not afloat, crews and visitors can find entertainment with the social events surrounding the marina including the famous shore party at the chartroom with live music on Saturday night. Prizes will be given on Sunday afternoon to decorate the winners in glory this will close the event. If you’re feeling peckish or parched, there is a café and restaurant onsite.


Haven Knox-Johnston are delighted to be the title sponsor of the 2024 Kip Regatta.

Supporting the yachting community and helping bring sailors together to do what they love best is firmly in our DNA.  The West coast of Scotland is a truly breath-taking place to sail and will provide a spectacular backdrop for a weekend of competitive on water action and by the sounds of it, some not to be missed social events!

The team at Kip Marina have a great track record of organising a fantastic event and with upwards of 50 boats expected on the water, the 2024 regatta looks to be no different.  We look forward to being involved across the weekend and working with the Kip Marina team to make the regatta one to be remembered.


All of us at Haven Knox-Johnston wish all racers good luck in the regatta
