AN ANNUAL regatta which starts off nine days of festivities in Flushing will take to the waters on Saturday.

The Flushing Sailing Regatta will see boats going around the seas off the village’s coastline.

It will then be followed by the Village Regatta which starts on July 26 and ends on August 3.

Chris Martin, the event’s chairman, said: “Regatta week is always a superb event.

“Flushing has a great community, with lots of fantastic volunteers who work hard to ensure this annual event takes place.

“With a programme packed full of activities, there is something for everyone and we hope locals and visitors alike get involved and enjoy.”
