The Regatta site is set up, the stall holders are arriving, Goring Unplugs stage is ready, the beer is cooling, the river is nicely full of water, the boats are rigged, and a black pirate sail is looming over the horizon. And best bit….. Saturday will be sunny! Our volunteers will be dried out and ready to greet you all for a great fun day – bring the family and enjoy!
The Regatta_draw is available (sorry the header says 2012!). Site setup is going to schedule. Craft tent, beet tent and arena are set up – we even have the boats all ready!
Racing starts at 09:30 and we will run the last race at about 17:45.
You can get to the regatta by foot along the towpath from Goring, Streatley or Moulsford (or further if you feel energetic!). We will be running a free shuttle bus service from Cleeve, Goring Station and the village centre. Car parking is available by Cleeve Lock. Click here for map and directions.
You can buy tickets in advance at Inspirations in Goring, or at the gate. We will have facilities at the gate and at the bar to take payments by plastic card. Keep hold of your ticket – it will act as a raffle ticket.
There will be plenty of food and drink on site, a funfair, vintage cars, giant slide craft tents and stalls, entertainment in our arena and a full programme of live music.
A special display in the craft tent will show you are plans for our new home at Gatehampton.
