Port Navas Regatta

The Port Navas Regatta was first held in August 1914, in the same week that war was declared. It was not held again until 1921.

The Regatta Committee of 1921

There were lapses again in the years before and during the second war, and after the war it was often difficult to get a committee together. The Regatta was re-started properly in 1962 and has been run every year since until this year when it fell victim to the coronavirus pandemic.

We’re all looking forward to next year’s Regatta. In the meantime Margaret Scott thought you might enjoy this collection of old posters.
