In the bar after racing on Saturday – Alake is playing

Alake is a singer songwriter who writes acoustic indie pop songs that dive straight to the point, adds some interesting commentary and jumps out again. He tries to explore many musical genres but keeping the best bits of popular song writing in there, so something for everyone in his sets!

Regatta NAP in aid of the Regatta and The Molesey Indoor Rowing Centre

You will be offered £1 tickets during the afternoon by regatta helpers and they will also be available from the information desk. One winning ticket will be picked after the last race each day and its holder will receive a substantial cash prize. Please buy at least one ticket!


Racing and Spectator photographs of the day will be available on the regatta website and the Molesey Life website.
