Whitby Regatta 2020 POSTPONED to 21st to 23th August 2021
It is with a great sense of sadness that, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone Whitby Regatta 2020 to the weekend of 21st to 23rd August 2021. This will be the first time since the Second World War that the Regatta will not be held.

We have reached this difficult but unavoidable conclusion for public health and safety reasons and embraces all the activities normally held on the West Cliff and East Pier including the Market, Funfair, Fireworks, Parade, Miss Regatta, Baby Show, Glamorous Grandmother and all other competitions usually held on Crescent Gardens and SPA Green.

It may, however, still be possible to run the rowing races, dependent on Government and public health policy in respect of ‘mass gatherings’ and “social distancing”, and for this reason the rowing season would be extended into September.

Subject to future Government notification of any relaxations and when life returns closer to normality it is intended, if viable, to organise a Community Event for the town with other organisations.

Meanwhile, I am sure you will wish to join us in our sympathies for all those grieving and suffering as a result of COVID-19. We offer heartfelt thanks to our wonderful NHS staff, key workers, supermarket staff and volunteers for all their selfless dedication
