The Lake Windermere Ambassadors are making a big splash this summer with the re-development of their annual Regatta event. Coined ‘Lake Windermere Summer Splash’ (not to be confused with the Rotary Club’s Splash Park) this free family event will literally have something for everyone.
With a new date and location, the event will take place at James Chabot Beach on Sunday, August 11. The Lake Windermere Open Water Swim will kick things off, seeing swimmers make their way from James Chabot Beach out as far as Timber Ridge beach and back.
At 10 am the games, music and ‘edu-tainment’ will begin! Paddleboard and kayak races, a sand-sculpture contest, beach volleyball tourney, and wetland explorations are just some of the free activities on offer. Prizes and awards will follow at 12:00 pm, with the traditional sailing regatta to follow at 1:00pm.
