Beer Regatta Programme

Traditional sea shanties start our week of events whilst avid anglers find their sea legs for the fishing competition. Get ready to trip the light fantastic at the Regatta Dance but save some energy for the Family Fun Day with races for young and old. Talks, competitions, barrel rolling and much more pave the way to Regatta Day.
