The Public Address during Chester Regatta will be broadcast on the internet. This service will be purely the regatta commentary and so there won't be a constant chatter except at busy times. However, rowers and coaches may find the feed to be useful when boating away from the regatta ground. Let us know what you think!
Thank you our 2017 sponsors who include:
Aaron & Partners Solicitors
Morris & Co
One City Place Chester
Rofft Developments 2000 Ltd
Tweed Nuttall Warburton Architects
Royal Chester Trust
And Cheshire West & Chester Council, particularly Cllr Razia Daniels (Lord Mayor of Chester and Admiral of the Dee), Cllr Neil Sullivan and Cllr Alex Black.
