Welcome to the website for the Fife Regatta. This prestigious regatta was first held in 1998, initiated by local Fairlie artist Alastair Houston and his sister Fiona. Over four editions (1998, 2003, 2008 and 2013), classic yachts designed and built by the Fife Dynasty in Fairlie, Scotland, returned to their home waters for this unique celebration of the finest sailing yachts ever created.
Plans are underway for the next edition of The Fife Regatta in 2022, so please follow us on Facebook to keep notified of any future announcements. While you’re here, why not check out our Fife History section and the Photo Gallery for images from previous editions of the regatta.

To bring a bit of musical cheer to all Fife enthusiasts it’s a delight to share this song written by a local Largs singer and songwriter, Graham Lyle and talented Fairlie based guitarist Charlie Evans.
Graham has spent a lot of his career based in the south of France and noticed with pride that some of the most beautiful yachts gracing Les Voiles d’Antibes were from his home area, he decided to get together with Charlie and write this lovely song about Fife. Graham has been one of the most prolific talents in the songwriting world working across different genres including country and popular music.
