Unlike last year, Regatta was anything but warm and sunny. Having had the wettest August since records began September started with floods around the country. In spite of heavy rain the night before Regatta day on Saturday 6th September at least Cookham was not flooded but it was very cold, windy and damp. Despite this there was still a holiday spirit and the great British spirit made it an enjoyable day. 

Lovely Boating Weather 

Apart from the actual races with all sorts of craft, there was also stalls for people to visit and the Scout barbecue sold out, possibly with people visiting it to warm up.

The vintage cars were also in attendance; always popular with the visitors who come from far and wide.  

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang


The Rotary club  as usual did a magnificent job, but are hoping for better weather next year.
