Whitstable Town Regatta - Racing still to take place!

Whitstable Town RegattaYou may have seen reports in the press over the last few weeks about the cancelling of this year's Town Regatta event on Tankerton Slopes by the Whitstable and Herne Bay Lions Club. Contrary to some of those reports, the 224 year old Regatta will still live on, in the original form of a sailing competition on the water between the town's best sailors! Whitstable Yacht Club will once again run the 2 days of racing on the 12th and 13th August this year, inviting sailors from Tankerton Bay Sailing Club and Seasalter Sailing Club to compete in the event, and continuing on in the spirit of the first ever event on Tuesday 7th August 1792!
We would like to thank the Whitstable and Herne Bay Lions Club for all the hard work they have put in organising the Regatta festivities over the last 40 years, and for all of the money they have raised for local charities.
