All attendees will get plenty of opportunities to view through our large telescope under some of the darkest skies in England in the heart of Dalby Forest.

This means we will only cancel an event if Dalby is inaccessible due to weather conditions.

Whitby Regatta @ Various Locations | Whitby | England | United Kingdom

Come and join us for three full days of entertainment for all the family to enjoy, including yacht racing, rowing races, fun fair and various free forms of entertainment around the town of Whitby, finishing with a prize presentation and spectacular firework display!

History of the Event

This event is one of the oldest sea Regattas in England drawing large crowds into the town. It all started in early the 1800s with fishermen competing against each other in their fishing smacks and salmon cobbles. Gradually yacht racing formed the greater part of the Regatta and was recorded in 1847 with “he Whitby Challenge Cup”.
Due to the high cost of building these large yachts they have slowly disappeared from the scene and in about 1872 competitive rowing came to the forefront. Today one of the main attractions of the Regatta are the three major rowing clubs in the region – the Jet Works Amateur Rowing Club, the Friendship Amateur Rowing Club and Whitby Fisherman’s Amateur Rowing Club.

The most coveted trophy rowed for today is the Wilson Cup, presented by the late Alderman JET Wilson J.P – C.C. of West Hartlepool in 1901. 1929 saw the first fancy dress and decorated carts, which form the present day’s regatta and carnival.

One hundred and seventy four years of aquatic competition and entertainment. The Whitby Regatta is probably the oldest sea Regatta on the northeast coast and has drawn large crowds into Whitby over the years.

Whitby Regatta
Aug 12 – Aug 14 all-day
Whitby Regatta @ Various Locations | Whitby | England | United Kingdom

Come and join us for three full days of entertainment for all the family to enjoy, including yacht racing, rowing races, fun fair and various free forms of entertainment around the town of Whitby, finishing with a prize presentation and spectacular firework display!

History of the Event

This event is one of the oldest sea Regattas in England drawing large crowds into the town. It all started in early the 1800s with fishermen competing against each other in their fishing smacks and salmon cobbles. Gradually yacht racing formed the greater part of the Regatta and was recorded in 1847 with “he Whitby Challenge Cup”.
Due to the high cost of building these large yachts they have slowly disappeared from the scene and in about 1872 competitive rowing came to the forefront. Today one of the main attractions of the Regatta are the three major rowing clubs in the region – the Jet Works Amateur Rowing Club, the Friendship Amateur Rowing Club and Whitby Fisherman’s Amateur Rowing Club.

The most coveted trophy rowed for today is the Wilson Cup, presented by the late Alderman JET Wilson J.P – C.C. of West Hartlepool in 1901. 1929 saw the first fancy dress and decorated carts, which form the present day’s regatta and carnival.

One hundred and seventy four years of aquatic competition and entertainment. The Whitby Regatta is probably the oldest sea Regatta on the northeast coast and has drawn large crowds into Whitby over the years.
