Molesey gearing up for 2013 Regatta

Now in its 146th year, the Molesey Regatta is set to combine fierce and fun races with a host of activities and entertainment for spectators.

Taking place on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st July, up to 350 adult and junior crews will race over an 850m or 500m sheltered course on the River Thames.

As well as watching the racing on a particularly picturesque, tree-lined section of the Thames, spectators will also be able to visit marquees featuring teas, cakes and sandwiches, a bar selling real ale and other drinks, shops with costume jewellery, scarfs and handbags, paintings, dresses, wood craft and postcards. There will also be a luncheon tent and a Pimms bar.

Following Saturday’s racing, the Elmbridge Big Band will perform an All That Jazz concert.

Entries to the Regatta close at 8pm on Sunday 14th July. For more information about the event, visit www.moleseyregatta.co.uk. You can also email mar@moleseyboatclub.org or ring 07951 638516 or 020 8979 7161.
