The Gravesend Regatta Society charity number 1181692 is the new incarnation of the Gravesend Town Regatta which was first registered in 1846 and this year celebrations 173 years of traditional skiff rowing in the Borough.
The next Regatta will take place at the Gordon Promenade Leisure Area when circumstances allow.
The Gravesend Regatta Society was formed as a charity at the beginning of 2019
The organising Committee is made up of elected members of the public, who all give their time voluntarily, plus 3 additional members appointed by Gravesham Borough Council.
Shane Cleaver is the current chairman.
Currently, there are 11 members on the Committee, including the Council reps.
2018 saw a reorganisation of the Gravesend Regatta Society's former incarnation, with several new posts being created and a new chairman elected at the A.G.M. after 46 years. We are keen to find enthusiastic people to join us, bringing along exciting new ideas, people who will help us to continue providing the residents of Gravesham, and its surrounding areas, a sport, leisure activity and way to keep fit with such a fine history.
Once we are allowed do come along to the practice events, normally April to October every Tuesday and Thursday at 5pm by the Rowing club. Check our twitter account to get the latest news @gravesendregat
