From yachts to rafts and rickshaws, there was something for everyone to enjoy at this year's Woodbridge Regatta & Riverside Fair.

The riverside event provided the perfect opportunity for people to celebrate Suffolk Day, with boat races, music, food and drink fit for the whole family.

Now in its 181st year, the regatta took place on Sunday, June 23 - stretching along the river from The Tide Mill to the Deben Yacht Club.

There were plenty of arts and crafts on offer for everyone

Doors opened at noon, followed shortly by a performance of Songs of Praise led by Churches Together on the Tea Hut Stage.

The regatta was formally opened by the town mayor at 12.30pm, and concluded with the traditional Duck Dive at 5.15pm on the Model Yacht Pond, organised by Woodbridge & District Lions Club.

Visitors enjoyed a range of riverside entertainment throughout the day, including yacht and dinghy races, while eight teams competed for the raft race prize of an inscribed paddle and bragging rights over other youth groups.

New this year was the St Ayles Skiff, built in the Longshed and now on the river, as well as the Woodbridge Memory Bike which offered rickshaw rides.
