Rousay Regatta

The Rousay RNLI hosts the Rousay Regatta.

The event begins with traditional sailboat races, followed by games, a BBQ, and of course The Raft Race!

During the Raft Race teams of four construct a raft out of any items they can find. The only pice of equiptment they can salvage from a boat is a propeller.

The race starts from the pier on Rousay, the rafts then head to Wyre, where they must touch the pier, and finally return to Rousay.

The Eynhallow follows to Wyre giving spectators a fantastic view of the action!

The Rousay Regatta has not been held since 2012.

We are still waiting to hear if one is being organized for 2018.
