Description

Hurley Regatta started life in 1973. It was the brainchild of a group of enthusiastic villagers as a means to raise money for Hurley Tennis Club. That first toe in the water comprised a few hard fought races on the river and a considerable amount of liquid celebration on land. Little could those intrepid few have guessed what they were starting as year on year the Regatta grew into one of the most popular and fun days to be had in the Thames’ busy summer schedule. Competitors are given a selection bits and pieces that must be assembled into a raft...or something that floats is perhaps a better description. Prior to the race there are plenty of land-based activities for young and old alike. But the biggest laughs are reserved for the regatta.
