A great day was enjoyed by all at the 2018 Community Regatta. Not only did the event pick the hole in the wet weather, but it also provided a great day’s entertainment for all those who attended.

A big thank you to all the teams who participated, the supporters and the sponsors – The Albion Hotel, Coates Hire, St John Ambulance, SES, V-Insurance Group, Roads & Maritime, AECOM, Michael Evers & Co, Medirest, The City of Newcastle, GHD & AURECON.

Without the contributions everyone made before, on and after the event it would not have been the success it was – Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

But alas, as with all events, there are limited bling collectors and here they are ..

Best Costume – Hash Flash (Newcastle chapter of the Hash House Harriers). These guys and gals dressed up as pirates, and in true pirate tradition (after pillaging and plundering the opposition) adjourned to the Albion to count their loot and recount their adventures.

Third Prize – The Unsinkables (AURECON)


Second Place – A-E-Commandos (AECOM):


and …… First Place – In Deep Ship (John Hunter Hospital):
