Whitby Regatta




21st, 22nd and 23rd August.



The Whitby Regatta committee, its volunteers, rowing clubs and Whitby Yacht Club are working very hard in conjunction with Scarborough Borough Council and other partners in perpetuating our historic community event that is important to Whitby and our community.

This is the Whitby Regatta's 181st year - the event has only been postponed twice, once for a World War when there were no people to take part and last year due to this current pandemic.


We are also in contact and asking for guidance from Public Health England. The planned event is also dependent on the Government dropping its social distancing rules due at its next road map announcement on 19 July.


We are working very hard to overcome all hurdles from current legalisation that is in place now and in the future to ensure we can celebrate 181 years.
