A bonanza of fun on the sea and in the skies will mark the 196th Torbay Royal Regatta which starts this weekend. The Red Arrows and a major fireworks display will light up the night skies and hundreds of enthusiasts will take part in the regatta road race and regatta rowing championship.
The West of England Rowing Championship takes place on Saturday at Hollicombe Park and beach. High Society jazz band will be playing in the park from noon and refreshments will be available. Torbay Athletic Club is expecting more than 500 entries for the regatta 10km road race on Sunday at 7pm. On Monday Fantastic Fireworks is promising its best display yet.
More money has been added to the display to ensure the regatta can retain its claim to the title of best regatta fireworks show in the west. The display from Corbyn Head will start at 9.30pm.
Tuesday sees the Water Ski Spectacular by Torbay and South Hams Motor Cruising and Watersports Club. The best viewpoints are Princess Pier and Torre Abbey Sands. The display starts at 7pm.
On Wednesday members of the Rolls Royce Enthusiasts Club will be parking up their impressive motors at Living Coasts, Beacon Hill, Torquay. The cars range from the early 1920s to present day and will be joined by several Bentleys and an Aston Martin.
The Red Arrows will be taking to the air at 6pm on Wednesday.
