12 DARTMOUTH REGATTA NEWS W


ell, spring has finally sprung, and we have been enjoying some fabulous clear (but freezing) days in Dartmouth. We had


snow in April – ok, maybe just for ten minutes, but still - snow in April! Your Regatta committee are still beavering away,


ever mindful of the current and future restrictions. You can be assured every event within Regatta is going through stringent controls to ensure everyone’s safety and we are keeping a close eye on the government’s large event report due over the next few months. Regatta news for you: we can


confirm the madness that is the KONTIKI RAFT RACE is BACK. Due to tides, rafts will launch from 5pm on Saturday 21st


August. If you have


a bit of lockdown lethargy or have had a good tidy up of the garage, get building a raft! It’s the best fun EVER to be had on the river! Also on the river, we can confirm the


NEWFOUNDLAND DOGS will be back displaying their amazing rescue skills, and James Prestwood will be Flyboarding above the crowds! There will definitely be a CRABBING


COMPETITION, FIREWORKS, amazing LIVE MUSIC throughout the week and FRIDAY BOATFLOAT FUN. SPOT THE ODDITY will feature as will our FAMILY FUNDAY with the famous Dartmouth Regatta Dog Show and our new Silent Disco. In Coronation Park there will be 3 OPEN AIR


CONCERTS this year, not 2, and all the usual shopping, CRAFT MARKETS, ROAD RACES, TENNIS TOURNAMENTS, BOWING, DARTS and GOLF will happen. We will just have to consider any restrictions and regulations recommended at the time, but we are determined! This is just a flavour for you. We will publish all events and timings in our souvenir programme which


This is just a flavour for you. We will publish all events and timings in our souvenir programme which we will have on sale from the end of July.


we will have on sale from the end of July. Please do buy one. The whole week is free to attend. Yes, there are some ticketed events, but most of the entertainment is there on a free platter for the local community and visitors alike to enjoy. You can listen to live music, enter your best photo in the Regatta competition, spectate all the live sports, watch river displays, fireworks, see HM Royal Marines Band, get your kids in the fancy dress competition and generally soak up the atmosphere. It is truly a week like no other for the whole family.


Regatta is ENTIRELY run by a bunch of passionate volunteers, who give up masses amounts of their time to put the event on. We receive no grants, and rely on donations and generous sponsors. It costs around £150,000 to run the Port of Dartmouth Royal Regatta. To


give you an idea, the security arrangements alone cost more than £14,000, the public address system around £9,000, that’s before we even think about traffic and road closures, waste, insurance…we could go on. It easy to see how quickly costs mount up! So please do help out by buying a programme. Every little helps!
