Temple Tiny Regatta

Regattas need not be large and formal functions involving hardcore racing, signal flags, and grown men screaming for room at the mark. You can drum up just as much fun by assembling a few friends, a handful of small boats, and setting up an impromptu course. The 2010 Temple Tiny Regatta was no exception; the only screamers were the spectators waiting for their turn on the dock. What a blast!!

    Your TTR ‘time machine’ worked. It took me to 1953 when, as an 8-year old apprentice, I learned the importance of a square blow to a ring-shank nail as I helped my dad build an 8′ Sears Catalog pram. That was the first of the fleet of 13 different hulls totaling 307′ of waterline, but after watching this video I realized that the first eight were the most significant. Thanks for the lump in my throat.

    You’ve captured the essence of “messing about in small boats’ with the freedom of spirit and wholesome, ageless, togetherness. Congratulations on another inspiring video.

    Thank you.

    Fine video made “above the rest” by the music selection and the high quality sound and camera performance.

    I hope you guys don’t get tired of doing this.

    Brings back some super memories! Poole Harbour, Dorset UK -1958 -60s ‘Yachting World Utility Dinghy’ Plywood Pram built by my father – then into International Cadets – so much fun – so little stress!

    Marvelous! There’s something in the local genes, though. Every staggeringly cute third child has a magnificent head of red hair.😉

    I always like looking at this great regatta as the season starts. Boats and Kids – what could be better? (and I love that the dog doesn’t seem fazed by Eric and all the excitement)

    We already have Paxton, the Borealis Press office baby, signed up for lessons when he’s six, in 2022. First row trip this weekend. First OCH video for him starts right now.

    This should be “required watching ” for first graders and in every seaside community! Infectious, clean, healthy family fun!

    This is my absolute favorite video Steve. More videos with kids and families this summer perhaps? I love the Joel White tribute as well.
