Hundreds enjoy a day messing about on the river at Woodbridge Regatta

Music, sailing, fun and games were the order of the day as hundreds of people enjoyed Woodbridge’s annual celebration of its rich maritime history.

Gotelee was proud to sponsor the regatta, now in its 179th year, especially as the firm has recently opened a new office at Quay Point on the Riverside.

Organisers said this year’s event was the biggest ever, with record numbers of visitors enjoying the fun and supporting good causes in the process.

Woodbridge Lions, which runs the charity duck race, even sold out of yellow rubber entries, with more than 1,000 taking to the water at the end of the afternoon.

Competitive events included a raft race, which was also sponsored by Gotelee and was won by 5th Woodbridge Sea Scouts, and yacht and dinghy racing.

There were free boat trips on the river and the Tide Mill opened for free visits. Meanwhile, the bandstand hosted crafts, games and activities.

Charles Rowett, chief executive at Gotelee Solicitors, said: “The Woodbridge Regatta is always a fantastic day and we were delighted to support the event as part of our commitment to the communities we serve.”

Regatta committee chairman Geoff Holdcroft said: “The regatta is all about Woodbridge coming together to celebrate its riverside heritage.”
