Check back here for any updates



West Mersea Town Regatta takes place on Mersea Island in Essex, and has been running since 1838.
The Town Regatta is run by a hard working voluntary committee and although it is usually held at the end of Mersea Week,
has no connection with other clubs and is entirely self-financed.

Photos of the last Regatta may be seen on the events pages from the menu on the left.

The Regatta Programme is now available in many local shops and at Regatta events.

The Cobmarsh Marathon and Dinghy Races take place before the main Regatta and in 2021 are on Saturday 14th August.
The main Cobmarsh event is a pair-oared Rowing Race around Cobmarsh Island, followed by several more light-hearted rowing races.

On Saturday 28th August 2021, the Sailing Races start Regatta Day events.
The first start is at 0900 hrs with about 100 boats taking part, split into 7 different classes.

Entry Forms for the sailing events are available in the Regatta Programme and from this website and must be handed in to the West Mersea Yacht Club.

The Watersports events get underway in the early afternoon, with a variety of Rowing Races, an Outboard Motor Balloon Race,
a Swimming Race and the ever popular final event is 'Walking The Greasy Pole' which is rigged over the side of the Thames Barge Committee Boat.
Entries for the Watersports are free and entering is not required - just be on the start line.

Waterside Attractions include Displays, Stalls and Entertainment including Regatta T-Shirts & Polo Shirts on the car park.
Stocks Fun Fair opposite the Victory.
The Bocking Concert Brass Band on the green.

A Grand Firework Display takes place at 9.00 pm. Please give generously to the bucket collection, as this is the only funding for the display.

The usual 'Coast Road Evening' social event in Peter Clarke's Shed is CANCELLED this year.
