All Ship Shape At The Port Of Dartmouth Royal Regatta
13 Sep 2019

The 175th Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta has been hailed a huge success, thanks to its volunteers, competitors, visitors and sponsors.

Supported by Linden Homes, the event is a key date in Dartmouth’s calendar with over 50 sailing races – providing plenty of opportunities to compete and spectate. There are also crabbing, pavement artist, spot the oddity and fancy dress competitions, including a performance by HM Royal Marine Band at the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta Official Opening Ceremony, and a Proms in the Park concert.

Joseph Federis-Cox, sales manager at Linden Homes, commented: “We were delighted to support the Dartmouth Regatta, especially as it’s run entirely by volunteers! It’s a fantastic event that attracts hundreds of visitors locally and nationally and it was great to see so many people there. Linden Homes had a stand with virtual reality goggles so visitors could see our new homes and explore for themselves!

“We’re creating a stunning new development of houses and bungalows at French Furze in Blackawton, just six miles away. It’s a beautiful part of the world, offering the perfect balance of countryside living, with breathtaking coastline, Totnes and Dartmouth nearby.”

“The Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta was delighted to have prestigious local builders Linden Homes present during this year’s Regatta 175,” said Regatta chairman, Ed Botterill. “Without the support of our sponsors, we simply could not put on the event, and Linden have long been staunch supporters. We hope to see them back next year, with more virtual reality fun!”

2020’s event will take place from 27th to 29th August. For more details visit
