Woodbridge Regatta

On the 5th of December specially decorated boats, crewed by the Woodbridge Sea Scouts, will accompany Sae Wylfing, The Sutton Hoo Ship’s Company’s own half size replica of an Anglo- Saxon ship, to form a mini Christmas regatta.  

Setting off at approximately 12.30pm, and working their way down the River Deben from The Woodbridge Boat Yard, they will lead a parade to be followed by the public, ending at Whisstocks Place on Tide Mill Way. 

On arrival participants will be met by Santa in his Sleigh, supported by his helpers from the Deben Rotary Club, and live festive music curated by The Spirit Of Woodbridge.  

The event will also see local businesses and charities form a mini Christmas Market, open from 11am until 4pm, and supported by the surrounding shops and restaurants. Additionally, The Longshed, Woodbridge Art Club, The Tide Mill and The Woodbridge Museum will be open to visitors and will be hosting an exciting array of exhibitions and activities.  

The proposed event offers a fun an excellent opportunity to get in the festive spirit whilst supporting some of the town’s incredible charities and organisations.  Please join us at this unique event to showcase Woodbridge which kicks off a calendar of exciting events in the town throughout December.
