Rowers take the strain at Whitby Regatta

Rowers in the girls’ under 14s category battle it out in our video footage here, as Whitby Regatta gets into full swing.

Thousands poured into town yesterday for the start of the merriment, with plenty of attractions on land and at sea, with the raft race and greasy pole among the highlights.

Today (Sunday) offers another busy day for the rowers, with the girls’ and boys’ under 16s races, the ladies senior and men’s over 30s all due to be in action.

You can also catch the tug of war which is on at Archery Green, 2pm.

The rowing concludes tomorrow night (Mon) with the presentation at Whitby Pavilion, 7.30pm start.
