Regatta

28th August 2006

The Ross Regatta has been held on the Wye since the first August Bank Holiday in 1874. Originally it consisted of coracle and canoe races and a "fun day" but since then the levels of competition have increased along with the sophistication of the boats and now there are trophies to be won.
