History of Regatta

India International Regatta is held each year in October - December at Chennai, Tamil Nadu  to bring together competitors and general public a complete ‘Celebration of Sailing’.

Through the conduct of events, India International Regatta which is part funded by Government of India and Government of Tamil Nadu aims to :

  • promote interest in preservation and conservation of our environment and natural resources.
  • promote sailing as a healthy and enjoyable sport for pleasure and competition for everyone for life.
  • bring international and interstate sailors to Chennai.
  • highlight and promote Chennai as the world class sailing destination.
  • support the development and growth of sailing classes, Yacht Clubs and sailors.

India International Regatta provides the greater Indian sailing community, in particular youth sailors, with a terrific opportunity to learn and develop into future World Champions. By conducting professionally run regattas, bringing together many of the World’s best sailors, with support programs and coaching, excellent facilities and infrastructure we are helping Indian sailors become even faster, more professional and better experienced to take on the world.
