West Mersea Regatta

West Mersea Town Regatta takes place on Mersea Island in Essex, and has been running since 1838.
The Town Regatta is run by a hard working voluntary committee and although it is usually held at the end of Mersea Week, has no connection with other clubs and is entirely self-financed.

 

Sailing

The sailing events take place on Regatta day morning. There are about 23 different classes which include smacks, dinghies and cruisers, so there is a suitable class for every sailing boat to enter. The River Blackwater is literally full of boats!
For many sailors, this is the only race they will do in the year, giving them an opportunity to compare their performance against other similar boats.

 

Watersports

The Watersports events get underway in the afternoon at about 3.30 pm, with a variety of rowing and sculling races, an outboard motor balloon race and a swimming race. The final event is 'Walking The Greasy Pole' which is rigged over the side of the Thames Barge Committee Boat.


Entries for the Watersports are free and entering is not required - just be on the start line in a suitable boat for the event. Full details of all races are printed in the Regatta Programme, on sale in many local shops.
