About the

Suffolk Yacht Harbour Classic Regatta

The east coast’s leading racing weekend for classic yachts is an annual event held at Suffolk Yacht Harbour (SYH) and hosted by Haven Ports Yacht Club. 


First held in 2002, the regatta welcomes everyone from keen racers to social sailors to compete in the fast, slow and Stella classes. On-the-water action is complemented by camaraderie ashore, including a regatta party and live music.

Welcome to the SYH Classic Regatta

Hosted by Haven Ports Yacht Club, the regatta is based at Suffolk Yacht Harbour (SYH); the largest independent marina on the east coast and a ‘one-stop shop’ for classic yachts.  Located on the River Orwell, SYH has 550 berths, swinging moorings and workshops designed specifically for classic yacht maintenance and restoration. Additional services onsite at SYH include a chandlery, sailmaker and rigging specialists.  

Latest Results

The SYH Classic Regatta runs a three-race series for fast, slow and Stella classes across Saturday and Sunday.  There is an additional evening race on Friday evening, which has separate prizes to the overall regatta.

2020 Entry

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 Suffolk Yacht Harbour Classic Regatta has been postponed.  The regatta is currently planned to take place later in the year with dates to be confirmed.  Visit the news page for further details.


The regatta is captured by a professional photographer and videographer and as a result there is an archive of wonderful imagery and film showcasing the event.



Competitive racing is complemented by camaraderie and a varied social programme ashore.  Events include live music, a pop-up restaurant and a regatta dinner.
