  1. thank you glenn and tom for the fantastic photos they make me feel very home sick.

  2. Whitby Regatta is still by far Whitbys premier event! It was an exceptional, trouble free Regatta with a good family atmosphere.

  3. And just how much will jmk and other directors make out of the reggatta.!

  4. I would like to point out, that the Regatta is the longest established August event, and has being held for some 170 yrs, the Regatta has never clashed with the Folk week, it is the more recently introduced event, the Folk week that clashes with the Regatta. The Folk week being very restricted with its dates, demanding the last full week in August. So this covers depending on the calender, the dates from as early as the 17th to the 31st August. So if the 17th happened to be a Monday, then that is 3 Mondays in August the 17th, 24th and 31st, the Regatta has to keep clear!! Leaving only the 3rd & the 10th, which is unacceptable.The Regatta is wholly dependent on the big tides, for the rowers, making sure there is plenty of water in the Harbour on the afternoon, and a later date being preferred by the rowing clubs to keep the season open during the summer holidays. I think it is selfish of the hospitality mob to want to high jack August for this event, which has nothing to do with local people. Hardly any other business benefits from Folk week in fact it suppresses business, and I think that if anybody cant fill a B & B, holiday let, caravan etc the last week in August without the Folk week , then there is something seriously wrong. Why cant the folk week be at another time when Whitby need organised extra visitors. Further more I think it is mean and selfish of the Folk week organisers and the people who attend to want to have Whitby to themselves, on what would be any way the busiest week of the year. It is as if they are saying “Thanks very much lets have Whitby to ourselves” . I did notice this year the town went very quiet suddenly on Tuesday after the Regatta!
    Looking at it from my business point of view, I can take up to 700 people a week out fishing, which declines during the Folk week, I have yet to have had any custom from people visiting for the Folk week.
