Miss Regatta


Miss Regatta 2018

Poppy Draper



Poppy Draper is Miss Regatta 2018. She was selected following a successful interview at the Whitby Yacht Club in June. The 18 year old student said that she had never thought of putting her name forward for Miss Regatta but was persuaded by her family to ‘give it a go’. 

Poppy aims to go to university in September to study primary education and thought that the experience would be “a nice way to end my summer”. After being selected by an interview panel with Sally Landers, the Miss Regatta co-ordinator and Bill Miller, Regatta Committee Representative, Poppy said that “the reality has not yet sunk in but I am really excited about it. My family are all very proud and my nana and grandad are so excited. The whole process happened very quickly when I was called forward for interview and found that I had been successful soon afterwards”

Poppy will have a very busy weekend fulfilling the duties of Miss Regatta which includes attending planned events, presenting prizes and meeting with various dignitaries. 





The event will be advertised on Social Media with details of applications.
