The history of the Palm Beach Regatta dates back to the early 1900’s. With anticipation and a multitude of participants the original Palm Beach Regatta started what was to become a staple in the Palm Beach Community; boating. Positioned perfectly the shores of these cities have been lined with yachts and vessels of all shapes and sizes. These sightings are more rare than ever these days.
Between great partnerships, great participants, other great events & the support from the community we will hopefully regain the attention of potential boaters and rekindle the flame for the older yachtsman and boaters alike.
We hope that you spread the good word and join us on February 21st, for the 2015 The Palm Beach Vintage Regatta as we invite you to be a part of the Inaugural Antique Yacht Exhibit and Sail Races. Over 20 vintage yachts will be showcased for all to see. Join us at the beautiful downtown West Palm Beach waterfront as we revitalize Palm Beach history for a once in a lifetime opportunity. This is a spectator event and is open to the public.
The Palm Beaches has a long history of being one of the finest yachting destinations in the U.S. with yachts hailing from ports across the globe. Regattas and races are part of our history and date back to the 1920’s. Well, we embrace our past. The legendary Palm Beach Cup was held right here between the Flagler Memorial and the Royal Park Bridges. In years past, the docks were alive with some of the most magnificent works of art handcrafted of wood. Many of these beautiful yachts still exist including “HONEY FITZ”; The Presidential Yacht, which served five United States Presidents, and many other distinguished yachts with be on display. The City of West Palm Beach’s Flagler Drive docks provides a perfect setting for land displays of watercraft and other exhibits.
