Founded in 1817 Shaldon Regatta is the oldest event of its kind held in Britain today. The programme may have changed but the principles behind the events haven't. The aim of the Regatta is to encourage people of all ages to use the river and foreshore safely by combining a balance of 'deadly serious' races and fun events that are enjoyed by competitors and spectators alike.

Unfortunately it is expensive to put on the numerous events we run. Equipment has to be purchased and maintained and prizes allocated to the winners for more than 130 events.

We appreciate all the support you can give, whether a one of donation for a monthly contribution. Thank you!

A big thank you to all our current patrons:
