Bigton Regatta 2007

The BIG event ....!

The next Bigton Regatta will take place on Saturday 9th June 2007. Day time activities will include a BBQ, soup and sandwiches, sweeties, beer tent, sand-castle competition, face-painting, Oscar Charlie, tug o' war and, hopefully, beach volleyball (bikini's optional!). All this in addition to the rowing programme. At night we'll be having live music in the beer tent by Fullsceilidh and North Country Fair, �5 entry for adults, �2.50 under 18, and a beach bonfire. So bring your rowing gloves, bucket and spade, and dancing shoes for a fun-filled day and night on the beach.

Recycling Initiative: On regatta day glass bins will be provided. Please look out for the labelled bins.

The race order has been finalised. Races will start slightly later this year at 3pm.

As in previous years, there will be a towing service for the yoals, available from the carpark from approximately 1.30pm. If you wish to use your own 4x4, please take direction from the stewards, drive slowly and keep a sharp eye out for children. 4x4's may park on the sand. All trailers will be left on the sand. Please be considerate and leave the lower end of the carpark free for elderly and disabled users. All other cars please also take direction from the parking stewards. An overflow carpark as been provided in Bigton, if required. Please give yourself up to 15 minutes to walk to the pier from this car park.

In the, hopefully, unlikely event of the rowing races being cancelled due to weather, the party will still carry on at the beach. So please join us.

Race day contact is Marina on 01950 422310. All other times or enquiries, please contact Magnie on 01950 460873 or email

Enjoy your day and good luck!
