The refreshed face of the Solent Scout Regatta


The Solent Scout Regatta has changed, now it is a two day event with pulling on a lake and sailing at sea.

The events this year take place on the 24th and 25th of September. The first day hosts the pulling, at Testwood Lakes in the New Forest, courtesy of the 4th Eling Sea Scouts who let us use their HQ. The second day will be at Hythe Sea Scout HQ on Shore Road, Hythe where they have a beach and great sailing facilities.

The regatta is organised by the Solent Scout Regatta committee, a part of Hampshire Scouts, and has been running for over 20 years. It's changed and developed to fit in with modern Scouting requirements. 

The boats are provided for use by Troops from around the area and all you need to bring is a buoyancy aid and some boating clothes. We have safety boats with qualified drivers, therefore the leaders (although in charge of their troop on shore) can let the scouts sail.

Burgers, hot dogs and similar food will be available on site. The award presentations are made at the end of each day and we hope the site will be left clean and tidy.

To enter you can contact Dave Chadwick at [email protected] or Allan Glass to know more about the event at [email protected]

We hope to see loads of Scouts on the Regatta days.
