SUNBURY AMATEUR REGATTA

P.O. Box 65, Sunbury on Thames, TW16 6EG

 

Since 1877, Sunbury Regatta has not only been a serious skiffing race event for local clubs, but it has also been an annual calendar event for Surrey and the local community.  It is generally held in August each year.

 

Many families attend to watch 60 club skiffing and punting races, as well as 40 local events such as ‘Row for your local’ and Dongola racing in fancy dress. 

 

The Regatta attracts competitors from skiffing and punting clubs, fire brigades, police forces, the army and businesses across the Thames Valley area.

 

Away from the river, the lawn on Rivermead Island provides family fun and events all day.  Food stalls from around the world, bar tents, live music through to face painting and tug-o-war provide entertainment through to dusk when the increasingly renowned fireworks display entertains people for miles around.

 

The Regatta has kick-started the careers of a number of Olympic rowers and inspired a healthy outdoor lifestyle for thousands of young people. 

 

It is run by volunteers with the income generated used to fund both the Junior Regatta and local charities.
