June 2013 Durham Regatta Proves To Be A Shining Success

Last weekend, thousands of people turned out to soak up the sun and watch some competitive boat races at what proved to be a very successful Durham Regatta.

As one of the oldest regattas in the country, the 180th annual Durham Regatta saw around 600 different crews from up and down the country compete in 500 hundred races spread throughout the weekend.

Regatta chairman Nigel van Zwanenberg was delighted with the overall event saying: “It’s gone exceptionally well. The weather was fantastic. The crowds were huge.”

In total, more than 8,500 spectators descended on the Durham riverside, witnessing hundreds of trophies being handed out to victorious rowers along with the special award for Durham Regatta stable Keith Yeates. Mr Yeates has been involved in the event year or year for the last 60 years, even commentating on the event since 1976.

Workwear Express had the pleasure of helping support the event by providing a range of printed t-shirts to be used throughout the weekend.

The design of the t-shirt was decided through a competition amongst the College Boat Clubs of Durham hosted by the Regatta themselves. The winning college boat club is then responsible for the marketing, production and sales of the t-shirts.

The design created by Workwear Express for this year’s Durham Regatta was created by Collingwood College.

Check out the video from Workwear Express to see how the Durham Regatta t-shirts were printed using our professional in-house screen printing facilities.
