Solva Regatta has evolved over its 130 year history. Over the last few years the committee has found it very challenging to run three separate events in the summer holidays. Solva is a busy village with many events packed into the short summer season. This year the Raft Race was held on Whit Sunday which proved to be a huge success. We are now concerned about the Inshore event on Sunday 19 August, which has seen declining entries. It would be a shame for this great village tradition to fade out. That’s why we need your help. We are asking for ideas:- Could we run the children’s and the adult event on the same day? Could we merge them? Could you help or join the
committee? Could you sponsor a race? Could you organise the Regatta trip – an outing which hasn’t run in the last few years? Could you enter the swimming or kayak races? Or how about donating to the Raffle? The committee would also like to appeal to you for donations, not only to fund prizes, but to cover the costs of organising the events including printing, safety cover, insurance, equipment renewal and administration.
At the regattas we will have the usual attractions, including side stalls, raffle and guess the flags. Louise’s Café on the Quay will be catering for all events with fantastic food and a fully licensed bar. There is no charge for entry to any Regatta event except the Sailing Regatta (£10 per boat, £5 for SSC members) and programmes are free, and available in the village during the Regatta season. The committee would welcome your feedback and
looks forward to seeing you on the quay.
