27th August 2015 - Press Release

Final countdown to flagship festival of family fun at Port of Dover Community Regatta



We are now down to the last few days before Dover's flagship seafront event returns, facilitated by the Port of Dover with a cast list of supporting partners.

The Port of Dover Community Regatta will feature free entry, courtesy of the Port, onto the world’s largest sea-going wooden ship, the Gotheborg, being brought to Dover especially for the Regatta.

Enjoy the arena displays by the emergency services organised by the Dover District Community Safety Partnership and explore the wide range of food, community and craft stalls along the seafront.

Nadeem Aziz, Chairman of the Dover District Community Safety Partnership and Chief Executive of Dover District Council said: "The Port of Dover Community Regatta promises to be a great day out for the family, and provides an excellent opportunity to showcase some of the range of great work carried out by the Community Safety Partnership.”

A regatta is not a regatta without activities on the water, so cheer on the teams competing in the Port-sponsored Dover Port Dash, raising money for two local charities, the RNLI and Emmaus.

Why not get out onto the water yourself and try the free water activities courtesy of Dover Sea Sports Centre and the Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club.

This year, following the return of the spectacular Blades aerobatic display team to round off the day, the event stretches into the evening with entertainment on stage and along the promenade organised in association with Dover Town Council.

Town Mayor of Dover, Cllr Chris Precious, said, “ Dover Town Council are delighted to provide the evening’s entertainment for this centuries old Dover tradition, uniting town and harbour in a celebration of the past, present and future.”

To round off our extended event, the Regatta finishes with a fantastic firework display over the harbour, kindly sponsored by local restaurant Cullins Yard.

Tim Waggott, Chief Executive, Port of Dover, said: “Together with all of our partners, we look forward to welcoming our community and visitors for a fantastic family day out. Wishing you all a great time on our fabulous seafront. See you there!”

The free family fun event takes place on Dover seafront on Sunday 30th August.
