On the water
The central feature of the Regatta will be the gig rowing, hosted by Saltash's own Caradon Pilot Gig Club. This will be the most accessible gig event in the region, with splendid views of the racing. The gig racing takes place on Saturday, with a Flashboat Regatta on Sunday continuing the rowing theme.
Saltash Sailing Club will be offering you a chance to try out some sailing with their very successful sailing taster sessions on Sunday, this year, Try Sailing a Yacht. Pop into the Sailing Club at the southern end of the Regatta site for more details. The Sailing Club will also offer pursuit dinghy races on Saturday.
Cardboard boat race
After a successful first event in 2016, this year sees the return of the cardboard boat race. After a blessing by The Rev'd. Preb. Brian Anderson, the boats and crew will take to the water, and see how far their cardboard creations take them! So have a look at the boat building rules below and start getting creative! If you would like to enter a craft into the race, let us know before the day. All entries welcome. Come along to the marquee at 1.30pm on Sunday.
