Special Events


There are many special events in and around the Salcombe area each year.

Salcombe GIG Regatta - June

A real spectacle that the very best of holiday snaps are made of with those tough battling teams of local men and women taking on the very best of the West with the fearsome challengers from The Isles of Scilly offering great competition.

Salcombe Yacht Club Regatta - August

For the more serious sailors and those looking for a completive spectacle. Cheer on the youngest Makepeace if he can squeeze it in between his summer activities at Soar Mill Cove.

Salcombe Town Regatta - August

When Salcombe really comes alive with fun for all the family from Greasy Poles, fireworks, The stunning Crabbers Race and lots more.  We recommend a trip to Cranches Sweet shop for those school day treats before scuttling back to the peace and tranquility of Soar Mill Cove after a busy day with lots to see and do.

Hope Cove Weekend - August

3 days of good old fashioned family fun with everything from childrens races to family sandcastle competitions. Live music, fantastic fireworks and food & drink sustain visitors through a lively yet relaxing weekend.

Frogmore Regatta - August

I guess we are a tad biased about the traditional fun we have by the water. Don’t miss this one, it’s side splitting laugh. Gates open from around midday. All welcome. Includes the 'famous' Globe challenge raft race, rowing races, family sports, tug of war, mud races, music and dance, the 'Top Marques' classic car show, pony rides, lots of stalls, side shows and attractions, cream teas, hog roast and BBQ, bar and Pimms tent. Free parking - fun on Frogmore Creek for the whole family! 

Dartmouth Regatta 28th to 30th August

With gig racing, crabbing competition, street art competition for children, fireworks on Thursday and Saturday nights from 9pm.
