The West Mersea Regatta is on 17 August 2019.

As always, Atalantas will get together for a natter and then take part racing for the ‘Atalanta Cup’ and for the fine wooden model of A12.  The racing is not too serious but provides a reason to get together in West Mersea!

There are still berths available if anyone wants to get afloat – contact Richard James (see below).

The Town Regatta is a great day out even without a boat.
