Whitby Regatta




21st, 22nd and 23rd August.



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

This is the Whitby Regatta's 181st year - and now that Social distancing has been relaxed, the Whitby Regatta committee are pleased to confirm that it is possible to hold the event, all be it smaller than in previous years.


Although, for purely organisational reasons, some of the Regatta favourites will be missing for 2021, they will return in future years.

The Whitby Regatta committee advise the continuing use of face coverings in crowded areas.

Programme Stockists

There will be no programmes printed for the 2021 Regatta

Whitby Regatta Programme Treasure Hunt.

The rules are simple. In the Programme is a list of local shopkeepers, cafe owners, trades and business people in Whitby and district who have been kind enough to pledge a prize. Each will display a number in their window which may correspond to that printed in your programme. Visit the list of premises in case you spy your number. If you do, enter the shop and make your claim.
