COM­MU­NITY RE­GATTA SUC­CESS

Practical Boat Owner - - Regional News -

The Port of Dover Com­mu­nity Re­gatta was hailed a suc­cess, with glo­ri­ous weather greet­ing the 10,000 at­ten­dees, who watched a mock yacht res­cue by Dover Walmer RNLI, as well as for­ma­tion flights, vic­tory rolls and loop-the-loops by Spit­fires from the Old Fly­ing Ma­chine Com­pany. Row­ing and sail­ing races were held, in­clud­ing the Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club Re­gatta, which was won by the yacht Black Di­a­mond.

Ashore, the event had more than 90 stalls and more than 80 vin­tage ve­hi­cles pro­vided by Dover Trans­port Mu­seum. The re­gatta raised money for Kelly Turner Fundrais­ing, in support of a Dover teenager who needs £1 mil­lion for spe­cial­ist can­cer treat­ment in Amer­ica.
