After a gap of 20 years, there will once again be a regatta on
Trentham lake in Trentham Gardens, Stoke-on-Trent, hosted by Trentham
Boatclub.

As part of this, we're trying to track down the original trophies for
the regatta, which were last seen sometime around 1985, 'in a bank
vault somewhere'.

If anyone has any idea, or knows someone who might know anything, then
please get in touch with me at leon.warrington at gmail.com

Longshot, but worth a try.

Cheers, Leon Warrington

More of a longshot - but when is this fabled event?

Not an answer (sorry) but I think I took part in the first ever, which
would have been 1972 I guess.

The pair of matched clinker 4s for the novice and senior C events
arrived on a lorry from Northwich, and one of them had its bows
knocked off turning into the gates of Trentham Gardens.  Oops.
Somewhat delayed the proceedings.

still being finalised, there be more details posted closer to the
time.
Cheers for your responses,
