Bell Island Regetta Is Revived

Hundreds of Bell Island people watched an exciting Lions’ Club sponsored regatta on Saturday, September 20th.

It was the first boat racing event held here in over twenty-five years.

The weather was ideal for the occasion. The clear blue skies were breathless as the little flat bottomed boats, propelled by the powerful strokes of their two man crews, moved gracefully along the two legged, quarter mile course.

As the finish line was neared, the din of auto horns and clamor of enthusiastic spectators’ voices spurred the sturdy competitors to renewed efforts.

The fastest time for the day was made by Lem BICKFORD and Fred CHURCHILL, representing Bickfordville in the "All Comers Race" – 3 minutes and 10 seconds, beating Eli CLARKE and Willard PYNN by only half a second.

Excitement was at a high pitch for the championship Race. Eli CLARKE and Willard PYNN were favoured to win. However, Reg TUCKER and Cyril HAMMOND won the championship honors in 3 minutes and 17 seconds.

Lion President Jack KENT and Chairman of the Regatta Committee, Mose BUTT, were pleased with the outcome of the Lions’ attempt to revive the Bell Island Regatta, which proved so popular in years gone by.

It’s more than a possibility that the Lions' Club will make the Regatta an annual affair.
