Throughout the day there will be variety of boats showcased on the river – a fantastic sight!
Many boats leave from Brightlingsea and sail up the river to Rowhedge, where the crowds can enjoy the spectacle!
Boat race prize giving will take place at 7:30pm
THE DUCK RACE
Down River Duck Race
A highlight for many at the Regatta! – Every year there is a mass rubber duck race, where everyone can enter. Its simple – you buy your rubber duck on the day and enter it in to the race down the river! Cash prizes for the podium winning ducks! Make sure you get your duck early as they run out!
Funds raised go towards the Mooring Association.
Another favourite with the little ones – Throughout the day people are invited to join the crabbing competition. You can start crabbing whenever you want, use whatever bait you wish, buckets and crabbing lines can be purchased on the day. There will be a weigh in at the end with prizes going to the biggest weight of crabs!
