Plans are going well for this year’s Regatta, and although the committee are responsible for organising the events and ensuring they are safe and enjoyable, the measure of success of each event is down to the people of Fowey and our visitors.  Please start thinking about getting together with your families and friends, or work colleagues or clubs to build a raft for the Raft Race, or make some costumes for the Carnival so we can make this year our best yet!

We are excited to announce that Fowey Gallants Sailing club will be hosting a QUIZ NIGHT  on Thursday 6th June at 730pm, all proceeds going to the Regatta.  There will also be a raffle.  We have some great prizes including complimentary tickets to our payable events.  £10 per team – Max 6 people per team.  Email bar@foweygallantssc.co.uk to book your team in advance.  If you would like to donate a prize, then please drop it into the Ship Inn! 

As you are aware, from last month’s update, we have made the decision to replace the Saturday Night fireworks with a Laser and Pyrotechnic display at Fowey River Academy.  We appreciate that not everyone is happy about this decision, but please be mindful that we talk at great length as a committee before we make any changes and nothing is done lightly.  We consider traditions, costs, local businesses, and the affects on the community as a whole and appreciate that different people like different aspects of the week and all we can do is make sure we are as transparent as possible.  

As usual we are looking for volunteers to help with events, so if you can spare a couple of hours, please contact us at help@foweyregatta.co.uk.

Unfortunately, ticket sales alone cannot cover our costs, so we heavily rely on the support of our patrons, with donations equating to 42% of our income.  If you are interested in becoming a Patron, please contact us at patrons@foweyregatta.co.uk

Thanks

The Regatta Committee
