222nd Whitstable Regatta - by Whitstable & Herne Bay Lions Club

Whitstable and Herne Bay Lions Club welcome you to the 222nd Anniversary of Whitstable Regatta. Being held on the 15th & 16th August 2015, it is probably the oldest sea Regatta in the world.

The two day event will be packed with fun, music, displays & fun for the children - Everything to suit all the family.

There will be a series of seaborne events which were popular in my youth & in my grandparents' day. On Saturday we are hoping for the boats of yesteryear & the Whitstable Yacht Club will be organising the sailing events. Sunday we have a flying display & for the first time waterski racing.

The local Lifeboat Service will also be demonstrating their skills at a seaborne rescue. There is also the return of the “Greasy Pole” for the sixth year.

The Saturday finale will be he Grand Firework Display out at sea. Certainly something to see.

Something a little different from the depths of time, medieval history brought to life with the East Kent Historical Organisation; certainly worth a look and exciting to watch.

Throughout the two days there are a magnificent array of stalls, sideshows and all the fun of the fair brought to you by Traditional Fairground Amusements.
