On Saturday 6th September 2014 the Rotary clubs of Cookham Bridge and Marlow Thames
organised the annual Cookham Regatta. On this dry and warm late summer’s day in excess
of 2,000 visitors made their way to Cookham Marsh for fun, food and games. Many families
and friends enjoyed the chance to wander amongst the many stalls and displays and
then relax with a picnic on the river bank.
During the day 320 competitors from organisations, clubs and groups of friends entered
one or more of the 50 river races. There was a selection of challenges to win which
produced some dramatic ‘photo’ finishes. For the 3rd time the Magnificent 7 from
Sheephouse Manor won the overall Cookham Challenge Cup.
Congratulations also go to the following teams;
Starboard Strikers - Dragonboat Final
Herries Hammers - Dragonboat Plate
Deliverables - CanoeCat Final
Eyot - CanoeCat Plate
Daring Loonies - Family boat Final
Rocking Powers – Family boat Plate
Our thanks go to all the shops, businesses, clubs and individuals that attended,
advertised, donated gifts for the silent auction or generally supported the regatta.
Their overwhelming generosity and support helped raise over £14k for local, national
and international charities and good causes.

We hope to see you all again on 5th September 2015
