Chertsey & Shepperton Regatta held on Saturday 28th July 2018 

The Chertsey & Shepperton  Regatta is a ‘pop up’ event which takes place in Dumsey Meadow, on the River Thames - a green field site with with a 350 metre course downstream on the Middlesex side of the river from near Chertsey Bridge to finish just before a bend in the river at the end of the meadow.

The weather was sunny and warm, most pleasant following the end of the recent heatwave the day before but there was a strong wind, fortunately in the same direction as the racing but made the row upwind to the start quite a test and more then a warm up. The Skiff club had the following entries:

Fran also managed to fit in a lunch date in Balham between winning the MVHD heat in the morning and the final in the afternoon, that’s multi tasking of the highest order. We were informed she skipped the dessert!

The punting events took  place over a course on the Middlesex bank adjacent to the skiff course, with the wind making steering even more tricky than usual.

Skiff club winners were Sally and Sarah.
