221st Whitstable Regatta - by Whitstable & Herne Bay Lions Club

Whitstable and Herne Bay Lions Club welcome you to the 221th Anniversary of Whitstable Regatta. Being held on the 12th & 13th July 2014, it is probably the oldest sea Regatta in the world.

The two day event will be packed with fun, music, displays & races 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 & on Sunday the Whitstable Yacht Club will be organising the sailing events. The local Lifeboat Service will also be demonstrating their skills at a seaborne rescue. There is also the return of the “Greasy Pole” for a fourth 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.
