UK TATTINGER REGATTA BUBBLED BRIGHTLY
Reported by Paul Young

We have just had the Tattinger Regatta at the Royal Solent, Yarmouth. This regatta was scheduled for the first time this year and is sponsored by Tatinger Champagne, who ensured that no one is thirsty, and had a turnout of around 170 boats ranging from old gaffers (leftover from the Paneriai Classics Week at Cowes) to IRC Class 1, through to sports boats and X One-designs. We had several Vipers present including Glyn Locke, a former EFG series winner in North America racing a new ” FER De LANCE”, and Jo Gillespie launching a brand new boat number “241” . There was some great racing, and some very impressive fireworks combined with some great parties; so this will definitely be back on the calendar for next year.
