The Torbay Royal Regatta has been taking place at part of Torbay Week with boats, yachts and races showcasing local sailing talent. And there's a new event this year - teams from local pubs and clubs are competing later in a regatta for non-rowers. The event runs until Wednesday.
Now entering its 5th year, Torbay Week has become one of the premiere sailing regattas in the South West. Jointly organised and run by the four local sailing and yacht clubs, Torbay Week is open to all types of Dinghies and Yachts.
Races are held each day for most boat classes and there are social events hosted in the evenings. For those not taking part on the water, the horseshoe shape of the bay provides plenty of opportunities for spectators. There are also a host of other attractions and land based activities.
