DARTMOUTH REGATTA 2019


Grab your spare planks of wood and string and get making -


After a gap of some 15 years, the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta will again be staging one of the town’s most exciting river challenges.


It will take place on Saturday, August 24,


and now is the time to get planning and making your raft. Although there will be a number of changes on past formats, this year’s race is sure to provide a mix of skills and ingenuity to be enjoyed by both participants and spectators alike. It will also be the chance to paddle in


the wake of one of history’s most famous explorers, Thor Heyerdahl, who in 1947 crossed the Pacific Ocean on the balsa wood raft Kon-Tiki. Almost just as remarkable has been the


Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta Kon-Tiki Raft Race which over the years has consist- ently tested the creativity and determina- tion of Dartmouth residents, young and old. Now, with the kind permission and


support from the Dart Harbour, the popular race will take place along the South Embankment with rafts being launched at the Higher Ferry Slipway and finishing at the Boat Float. A raft can be crewed by 2 to 10 people


with categories of entry for families and adults. The minimum age for participants


will be 8-years old; there is no maximum age limit! To be in the ‘family’ category, the crew must have an equal number or more children than adults (noting that for every 3 children, there must be at least one adult). To be in the ‘adult’ category, the crew must have a greater number of adults than children (adult defined as over 18yrs). With kind sponsorship from the Higher Ferry and Platform 1 Champagne Bar & Restaurant there will be trophies and awards for fastest crew and best dressed raft and crew in each class. The 2019 Dartmouth Regatta Kon-Tiki Raft Race will be limited


to 15 entries per race. The entry fee (non refundable) will be based upon the numbers of people on the raft as follows: 2-4 person raft - £10; 5-8 person raft - £20; 9-10 person raft - £30. The rafts will be launched from the Dartmouth side of the


Higher Ferry Slipway and the finish line will be just prior to the Boat Float where a marshall will record the time across the line. The race length is 550m. Your raft must be longer that it is wide and not be over 10 me-


tres in length. Nor must have any means of propulsion other than paddles, oars or sails. It cannot be based on a previously seaworthy


THE LEGENDARY KON-TIKI RAFT RACE IS BACK!
