Regatta 2009: Thanks Everyone

I’m sure that everyone with an interest in the Port Navas Regatta will already know that we had a great event this year.  You can see lots of great photos from the day and all the results on portnavas.com/regatta.  Of course the weather helped and so did the early tide, but I want to thank, on behalf of the organising committee, all those who gave their time and energy to make our Regatta such a success.  Port Navas is not a very large village and we are dependant on help from our many friends from the surrounding area. If you able to give us a hand next year please contact a committee member.

It’s great to see so many people clearly having a good time and that is really all we hope to achieve.  In the process we do manage to raise a little money; this year just over £4000. This money will be distributed amongst our usual mix of national and local charities.

Next year’s Regatta will be on August 7th.  Please put the date in your diary now.

Thanks again to all who helped and all who came.  See you next year.
