Whitby Regatta 2019 in Progress: Saturday

Saturday marked the start of the 2019 Whitby Regatta, which continues until the night time firework display at 9:45pm on Monday 12th August 2019.

The weather was rather mixed, and I struggled to find anywhere that had a Regatta programme (still no success at time of this post).

When I set off, the weather was warm and fairly sunny. By the time I reached the scene of the Regatta, it was windy and pissing down.

I made my way to Tate Hill Pier on the off-chance I’d catch the Raft Race, and guessed it about right.

The Wind was enough to help dry out my coat which had soaked through in the process of walking from Langbourne Road to Tate Hill Pier.

The wind also made it seriously awkward to hold the camera steady while zoomed in on the 2 rafts taking part.

After they’d given up, I made my way over to the West Cliff to see what was going on there.

The RAF Typhoon display had been scrubbed due to it being too windy for it to take off (went ahead Sunday when I couldn’t make it down), but the Bi-Plane aerobatics display was still able to make it.

Below are some brief hi-lights of the footage captured, with “YouTube Cards” linking to the extended versions of the footage inserted in it.
