Old Leigh Regatta Charity Scout Event Leigh on Sea

Old Leigh Regatta

 

The annual Old Leigh Regatta is a charity event organised in aid of the local scout community located within Leigh-on-sea Old Town. All proceeds raised benefit these groups enabling them to continue their activities for the younger generation. There are 3 scout organisations located in the Old town, 3rd Chalkwell Bay, 4th/6th Leigh-on-sea and the Southend West Explorers. As well as the local Scout groups, each year’s regatta supports an additional nominated Charity.
Old Leigh High Street closes for the regatta weekend to allow us to organise an array of fun family events and activities. There is live music for all tastes (various bands playing all weekend on different stages), Morris dancing, banana eating, cracker eating and cockle eating competitions, for both children and adults, as well as variety of stalls run by local shops and charities and various food stalls catering for even the most sensitive palate.
The fun doesn’t stop there either, if you’re feeling particularly strong why not attempt to climb the greasy pole or challenge a friend to a Bowsprit pillow fight.
There are also water based events specifically for the 2 Sea Scout groups, a competition that these young scouts train for all year around. Known as the Annual Scout Pentathlon, these series of challenges test both team work and skill. These Sea Scouts go head to head in challenges including a Dinghy Tug of War, Dinghy Sculling, and the famous ‘Leigh Marsh Race’.
