Brightlingsea Boat Show has a new central location for 2014 at Waterside Marina, Brightlingsea CO7 0BG. This spacious marina incorporating seafront apartments, town houses, shops and a wine bar is perfectly situated between the Colne Yacht Club and Brightlingsea Sailing Club on Brightlingsea’s waterfront.

Visitors to the Brightlingsea Town Regatta and Boat Show will be treated to some fantastic on the water events such as boat and fun races, displays and rescue demonstrations as well as being given the opportunity to try a boat themselves as part of a ‘Try it weekend’. Both clubs have yachts and sailing boats for visitors to try over the regatta weekend – please book in at the Colne Yacht Club or Brightlingsea Sailing Club.

There will be plenty of new motor boats on display at Waterside Marina plus stalls and shops offering chandlery, marine electronics, engines, clothing and everything you may want for your boat. There will be many stalls selling marine jumble which is being organised by the Brightlingsea Rotary Club. With local bands, Majorettes and a pompom troupe, RNLI, Coast Guards, Royal Navy Association and many more. There will be plenty of food available from the Colne Yacht Club, Sailing Club and other stalls.

As usual, there will be entertainment on the Saturday night from live bands. Brightlingsea Boat Show and Town Regatta will be the place to be – so make sure you mark your diaries and calendars for 31st May and 1st June 2014.

With local organisations, clubs and many marine stalls and businesses from throughout East Anglia represented, we expect a great show for the entire family.

With many thousands of people anticipated, the Boat Show and Regatta provide easy access, free parking and free entrance. With donations to the RNLI and Brightlingsea 4Youth, this worthwhile event raises important monies for these valued organisations.

Dogs are welcome – but they must be kept on a lead. With fun in mind, we aim to give everyone a warm welcome and a fantastic weekend!

The whole weekend boat show and regatta event is being supported by the Brightlingsea Town Council. All associations and businesses within the town and area are being encouraged to participate in this huge local weekend.
