Regatta 2015 Held on 5th July 2015 from 12:00 in Cremorne Gardens Ellesmere
The Rotary Club of Ellesmere staged its annual Bell Boat Regatta on the Mere against a
backdrop of changeable weather that never blunted the enthusiasm of the contestants.
Amongst the other family attractions on offer to the crowd of approximately 2000
spectators, only the Children’s Sports and the Martial Arts Display had to be cancelled on
grounds of safety, whilst the featured performances by Ukey Monsters were happily
unaffected by the rain.
A full programme of races in Adult Open, Ladies and Youth classes produced a number of
exciting finishes. Prizes to the winners and runners up were presented by the Governor of
Rotary District 1210, Richard Green (Adult Open), the District Governor Nominee, Carol
Reilly (Ladies) and Mayor of Ellesmere, Ian Ward (Youth). Adult Open winners were Tony T’s
Torpedoes, Ladies winners were Mama Mia, whilst in the Youth final Cheeky Nandos
triumphed after a number of years of honing their technique.
This year the event was staged in support of Ellesmere Age Concern Day Centre, Ellesmere
Scout Group and Ellesmere Rotary Charity Trust. The Club would like to thank all those who
worked so hard to help stage the event and also the good people of Ellesmere who turned
out in such large numbers to show their generosity. Details of the proceeds will be
published as soon as possible.
