Beer Regatta Committee

The Regatta Committee is made up of many enthusiastic people who plan, discuss and commit to put on a packed programme of events. The number of willing volunteers who give up their time to make Regatta a success is huge, and way beyond those listed on this page – a big thank you to everyone involved!

If you would like to help please get in touch via our Facebook page. Lending a hand doesn’t involve endless compulsory meetings – many of our volunteers are happy to just give a bit of time during Regatta Week to sell raffle tickets, to help with crowd control or shake a collecting tin for example. If you would like to come to the Open Committee Meetings then we would love to see you – we are always keen to have new people join us and always interested in new ideas. You can find dates of our meetings on our Facebook page.
