Regatta week is an annual tradition bringing together the local community, residents and visitors alike, to enjoy a variety of live music, competitions, pasty demonstrations, raft races, water sports and classic favourites such as the Children’s sports, Grand Carnival and flora dance procession.
Charlestown is one of Cornwall’s most photogenic villages due to the magnificent Georgian harbour – which takes centre stage, against the backdrop of the village, in the annual Regatta Week celebrations.
Organised by a team of volunteers, Charlestown Regatta week aims to blend well known traditions with contemporary events – but crucially also serves to fundraise in support of local community projects and charities.
