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.

9th/10th/11th September 2022

 

We are delighted to announce that we plan to hold the next Staithes Festival of Arts and Heritage on 9th,10th, and 11th September 2022. In the current circumstances there are a number of uncertainties set out below and we hope you will be understanding should we be forced to cancel the Festival once more.

Artist’s Applications

So much has changed over the last two years and we have no idea how much interest there will be among artists, to take part in the Festival this year. The artist’s fee of £250 is our main source of funding. It covers parking stewards, first aid, insurance and much more. Without it we would not be able to run the Festival. Applications open on 1st January 2022 and close on 31st April. We urge you to get your applications in as soon as possible so that we can judge if we have enough interest for 2022. We sincerely hope we will not have to cancel the Festival but if we are forced to do so we will of course refund all fees in full.

Covid

We plan to appoint a health and safety officer this year and will adopt a Covid secure protocol to ensure everyone is safe in 2022. If we are advised that the Festival cannot be made secure, or if a new variant arises or the situation changes nationally, we may be forced to cancel the Festival.

We sincerely hope that none of the above will arise and that everyone will come back so that we can make 2022 the best festival yet.

Dec 1 – Dec 3 all-day

Robin Hoods VictorianFrom the 2017 programme

The festive, family fun weekend will feature a mix of new and established events in the village’s quaint, cobbled, car free streets.

The Victoria Hotel will be hosting the third Baytown beer Festival featuring all the local company’s smugglers’ ales and spirits.

Carol singing and live music will featu

re prominently throughout the weekend, starting with the switch on of ‘Bayilluminations’ in the dock on Friday evening.

Family fun will include traditional games like splat the rat. There will also be beach games and street entertainment. Ghost and Smugglers walks will also feature.

Event coordinator Bev Rutherfordsays: “We are planning a refreshed event which captures the Victorian spirit of Robin Hood’s Bay. Walking between old cottages through narrow, pedestrian only streets surrounded by people in Victorian costume can really transport you back in time. It’s an atmosphere that cannot be found elsewhere.

“Combine seasonal gift shopping with the many traditional events like ‘balls down the bank’ and the RNLI duck race and it’s clear Robin Hood’s Bay Victorian Weekend is an unmissable Christmas destination for all the family”.

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.
