The West Mersea Regatta is on 28th August 2021. The East Coast Cruise in Company will finish in West Mersea on 27th to allow us to take part.

As always, Atalantas, owners and friends 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 should be 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.

  1. Hi Richard,
    I plan to attend the last two days of the West Mersea Regatta, shore based and am looking forward to the event.
    Kind regards
