After last year’s great first event, August will see another Campbeltown Community Regatta take place.

Kintyre Sea Sports, working  in conjunction with Dalintober Beach Group and many other local groups, will be staging Campbeltown Community Regatta again this year – after all the good work last year the 2019 event is eagerly anticipated.

The 2019 regatta will take place on Saturday August 10 from 11am till 4pm and there will be opportunities for everyone to try out a variety of sea sports and beach activities.

The sea sports on offer will be canoeing, dinghy sailing, kayaking, sailing in larger yachts, stand-up paddle boarding, sub-aqua diving, in the pool at Aqualibrium and wind surfing if conditions permit.

There will be beach games again on Dalintober Beach.

A spokesperson for the regatta team said: ‘It is an opportunity for everyone to try out these activities and also a chance for those already proficient to join in with others having fun on the water or on the beach.

‘It is open to local people and visitors of all ages from five upwards, but remember that some activities will have age limits on them and will be available to those of eight-years-old or more.’

And, best of all, the sports are free for all participants.

There will be refreshments available at very reasonable rates on Dalintober Beach and at Campbeltown Sailing Club.

More details will be revealed as the big day approaches, so keep an eye on the Courier and the Kintyre Sea Sports web page, where, closer to the event, there will be an online booking form.
