This year’s free council-run festival will be bigger and better than ever before. It will be a fun-packed day of activities centred on and around the River Medway, best viewed from Chatham Waterfront where there will be lots to see on and off the water.
If you want to try a boat or have a go at sailing, a shuttle bus will take you to and from the Boat and Chandlery Fair at Gillingham Marina.
Races and floating river processions are among the plans with colourful displays of yachts, rowing boats, motor cruisers, barges, tugs and kayak activities taking place on the River Medway. Local clubs and associations will be offering support and advice shore side for everyone to learn more about the river. Live music, nautical-themed performances, food stalls and children’s entertainment are also planned for the festival.
