A Suffolk riverside town celebrated its rich maritime traditions during a record-breaking regatta.
Organisers of the 180th Woodbridge Regatta reported another successful event, despite Sunday’s poor weather.
Regatta chairman Geoff Holdcroft said many turned out to enjoy the festivities, including record-breaking entries in the Raft Race, which was won by 5th Woodbridge Sea Scouts.
“It was a wonderful day out for all the family, and the fact it was Father’s Day made it all the more special,” he added.
This year’s regatta featured a variety of races as well as boat, yacht and dinghy rides on the River Deben, performances including sea shanties and morris dancing as well as stalls, games and the ever popular Duck Race.
