Call for Port Dashers – The Port of Dover Community Regatta needs you!

The sun is beginning to shine, the temperature is warming up and 26 July 2014, the date of the Port of Dover Community Regatta, is coming up fast.  Interest is building and Port Dash teams are coming on-board, so make sure you secure your place before it is too late!

 

Sponsored by the Port of Dover and back by popular demand, the Dover Port Dash will see teams race across the harbour in ‘Thames Cutters’ pitting their wits against the waves and challenging their fitness in a bid to raise money for local charity, the Cinque Port Pirates Sailing Club.

For the first time, there will be a Junior Port Dash, which is FREE to enter for teams of six, aged 10-16 years. There are 16 places which will give our younger stars the opportunity to show the adults how it is done!

All the places in the adult team are now filled.

Facilitated by the Port of Dover with the support of the Dover District Community Safety Partnership and the Dover Sea Sports Centre, the free event will return with all of the family fun of last year but with some notable additions such as a big classic car rally, an entertainment stage throughout the day, family activities along the whole of the seafront and a spectacular cutting-edge aerobatic display by the world renowned Blades to conclude the day.

Also on the water will be paddlesports, sailing tasters, pedalos and more, organised by Dover Sea Sports Centre plus a dramatic demonstration by the RNLI.  On land there will be demonstrations by Kent Fire and Rescue Service and a range of blue light services as well as community agencies organised by the Dover District Community Safety Partnership as well as a host of stalls offering entertainment and local produce.
