St Ives Summer Regatta

The Regatta is back!

On 13th and 14th July 2006 the St Ives Summer regatta took place. For two days festivites took place on the river Great Ouse along with family entertainment on Noble's Field. On Saturday a traditional rowing regatta was held and many clubs competed for prizes in singles, doubles, quads and eights. On Sunday Dragon Boat races were held between teams sponsored by local companies and organisations. Meanwhile there was family entertainment including music by local groups and fair-ground-like activities for the younger generation. All-in-all the day was enjoyed by one-and-all, and hopefully it will become a regular annual event.

Here are a few sample photos from the day. A comprehensive portfolio of pictures can be found here by entering "stivesregatta" as the event password.
