The Port Navas Regatta had another successful year with a combination of water and field events for all ages and abilities. Hundreds turned up to watch the fun and take part. ‘The atmosphere was very special, ’ said Jeff Meadows the Chairman of the Regatta Committee, ‘ people were clearly having a wonderful time and local charities have benefitted as well – a win-win situation!’ This was Jeff’s last Regatta as Chairman and a special engraved wine glass was given to him by members of the committee in gratitude for his eight years at the helm. The Ron Badger Annual Special Award went to John Blatter who has worked tirelessly over many years to create a successful event.
Richard Tiptaft from Point Cottage will take over as Chairman next year. The plans are already underway for the 2012 Regatta which will be on Saturday 28th July 2012.
