COMMUNITY REGATTA SUCCESS
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.
