This year’s Regatta hopes to include the village of Waldringfield as well as Club members.
For the shore events, we invite the children of Waldringfield to join in the fun. This includes the Fancy Dress competition with the theme this year of Scarecrows. All shore events, except for crabbing, will be on Saturday 11 July – see the programme.
Friday evening will see the bar open and social sailing. Earlier in the afternoon there will be a Classic Yacht Race down river and back.
Sailing races will see the Squibs, Shrimpers and Yachts racing on Saturday morning with a long river race. Squibs and Shrimpers will join the dinghy fleets for two races on Sunday. The dinghies will also race on Saturday afternoon.
The Supper on Saturday evening will be a Creole Jambalaya (veggie option may be booked). Tickets for this to be booked from Ricky East – firstname.lastname@example.org or 07799 645678. There is a limit of 100 for the Supper. Tickets booked by Saturday 4 July are available at discounted prices, £8 adult, £4, children under 14. Otherwise the prices are £10 adult, £5 children under 14. Final bookings by the end of Wednesday 8 July. Tickets to be collected please from Reception 14.00 to 16.00 and 17.30 to 18.30. We are sorry to have to enforce this arrangement but it has rather got out of hand in previous years.
Music is from the “Waldringfield Wailers” – you will recognise many of the line up! They hope you will all wish to dance.
There is no entry fee for the regatta but we will be collecting donations for the local charity EAST (East Anglian Sailing Trust) who do marvelous work helping blind and disabled people to get out sailing. Their EAST Ashore boat will be on the beach.
