Five Castles Regatta - e: info@fivecastlesregatta.org.uk

Welcome to the Five Castles Regatta web site. Teams from schools across Southwest Scotland and Cumbria compete annually for the Castle Loch Trophy. Tell your friends, tell your schools the new year is here!!! The Five Castles Regatta for 2016 is shaping up to be fantastic day of high octane racing followed by a fun activity weekend (optional). We are organising another three day event starting on Friday the 17th of June 2016. All the information and documentation you need will be available shortly. Look forward to seeing you there! The closing date for this years entries is Friday the 3rd of June 2016 so get your applications in as soon as you can!



The Five Castles Regatta is a team racing event incorporating a fun day for those who have never been exposed to a water based event. Schools enter teams of 3, they can enter as many teams of 3 as they are able to get together. Given the expansion of our event over the few years we may at some point need to place a limit on the number of competitive teams. team having to race each other team at least once. This results in over 60 races being held on the day. Credit has to go to the race organisers for making this happen!


Fun on the Water


A taster fleet allowis less experienced sailors to take part in the event. This fleet is more about learning the basics of sailing and having lots of fun. Equally importantly, it allows children to race on their own. Galloway Activity Centre’s Laser Funboat fleet is used, providing safe and forgiving racing.

A separate trophy is awarded to the winning team within the taster fleet. The hope is that this year's taster sailors will be next season's racers!
