A PAINTER captured the colour of this year’s regatta on canvas.

Peter van Breda, 56, has visited the event for the past eight years and likes the bright fashion statements of the spectators.

“Even on a grey day you get fantastic light with the colours, which are so vibrant,” he said. “Every year there’s something different. This year there was an entire team wearing orange hats.”

Mr Van Breda, who lives in East Sussex, enjoys the “business” of the regatta.

He said: “People meet up with old friends and stand and talk. You have new lads rowing and older chaps who rowed a long time ago. The conversations and the banter between them is most enjoyable.”
