These joyful moments are from Cate Styer on Twitter.
We were blessed with sunny weather and this year’s regatta was pretty much perfect.
This year there will be no Goring & Streatley Regatta, but there will be a Not The Regatta on 14th and 15th July!
Saturday 14 July: Sweep racing regatta-style over a 300 metre course in fours.
Sunday 15 July: Sculling in small boats or touring quads over a 2000 metre course ’round-the-island’ time trial.
The plan is for a 9am start, continuing until early afternoon.
Hopefully we will be using our new Explore Rowing fleet of touring fours. These are easy to row, so don’t hesitate to enter, whatever your skill level.
You can enter individually or in crews. Entries of less than a full crew will be combined to form a full crew. Please state preference for category if you have one.
Not The Regatta is open to club members and more experienced crews from past Goring and Streatley Regattas.
The cost is £10 per head and all profits go to the New Boathouse.
Closing date for entries is Monday 2nd July. Email entries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Goring and Streatley Regatta will not run in its traditional way in 2018. There is a huge amount of work to run the full “village fete” style regatta and we have had to compete for attention with the Goring Festival. We have decided to run the Regatta every two years, on alternate years to the Goring Festival. This will enable us and the community to give each event the focus it deserves.
Goring Gap Boat Club will run a lower key rowing-only event in 2018. We will wait to announce details while we focus on our new boathouse.
See you in 2019!
We have a lot of lost property left from the regatta. Please contact Nick Bubb.
