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.

Robin Hoods Bay Victorian Weekend
Dec 3 – Dec 5 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 weekend has always been popular for its many visitors dressed in Victorian attire. New for 2017 is the price of a free two night stay for two in Robin Hood’s Bay (thefernsuite.com) for the best dressed visitor.

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”.
