Tuck in during the regatta at Cafe Avon


The regatta is organised by Avon County Rowing Club and takes place on the River Avon at Saltford, between Bath and Bristol. The course is 1000 metres and straight.






A regatta was held on this course until 1972, when it moved to Bristol docks. In its heyday, it was called “the Henley of the West”. The regatta moved back to Saltford in 2008.


The history (pdf 491kb) gives a vivid picture of an Edwardian Regatta.
