The 2022 Regatta will take place on the weekend of 16 and 17 July and will feature two days of waterborne and shoreside fun and entertainment for all. For the first time in 2022 the Regatta will also feature Brightlingsea Carnival, which will kick off the regatta in style at noon on Saturday with a parade around the town and finishing at the Waterside. The traditional Saturday night fireworks will also be making a welcome return after a two year Covid break, and this year’s programme will once again feature all your favourite events and activities. Additional events are still being added, but
