Friday August 8th 2014 – Saturday August 9th 2014
Each year WARGRAVE & SHIPLAKE hold one of the largest regattas on the Thames with races for skiffs, punts and canoes.
There are 1000 individual competitors competing in 400 races over two days. The course is around 400 yards, down stream, but still arduous. The boats are traditional in style and heavy.
The regatta is open to everyone. There are events for boys, girls, ladies, gentlemen, mixed and veterans.
GGBC won’t be officially entering any crews but if you and your family or friends fancy entering a crew then please do. They provide regatta training in the weeks leading up to the event.
It’s a great day out for all the family with lots to do (racing, shop, bar and food tent, plus bouncy castles and ice cream vans for the kids).
Tickets are available on the gates (under 5′s get in for free).
If you are interested then please enter. Full details are on their website http://wsregatta.co.uk/
