Whitby Regatta

Whitby Regatta started over one hundred and seventy years ago which makes it possibly the oldest sea Regatta in England.The event was started by competing fishermen, and by 1847 yacht racing had become a major spectacle. In 1872 competitive rowing was included. By the 1930s yacht racing became too expensive and ceased to compete but it was at that time (1929) that fancy dress and decorated carts were introduced into the activities which was the forerunner of the modern carnival.The Regatta traditionally takes place annually over three days in August and is now attended by over twenty thousand people.
