Yesterday Portscatho hosted its annual regatta. It happens every year on the Saturday of the August Bank Holiday weekend. Each year it seems to get busier. When I was a kid it was more of a locals event when holidaymakers to the tiny village were not as prevalent. This was, however, many years ago and the village is packed each year with holidaymakers flocking in to experience the day.
The day starts early with stand up paddleboarding races (SUP) followed by children’s races on the beach and the very competitive sandcastle competition (we didn’t win – boo!). On the lugger you have a few stalls, a band playing and people milling around soaking up the sun and simply enjoying the atmosphere. I particularly loved the Sea Shanty singers, Du Hug Owr, who sang a few shanties during the afternoon. The day wraps up with the Flora dance followed by a band playing into the evening outside the local pub, The Plume of Feathers.
We had to head back to Truro early evening and thought we would grab some food before heading off. I had heard word that Tatums Taverna could do g/f pizza. We popped in to check this out, the word in the village was right. Very happily perched on a long communal table (loved the decor) I chomped my way through an amazing g/f pizza. Think thin and crispy, perfectly topped and full of flavour. The crusts were perfect dunked into aioli. To top it off you have a picture perfect view. Now, bad blogger, that I am I failed on the photo front so you will simply have to take my word for it and go check them out. I have, however, included a few photos from the village which is a perfect pitstop with or without pizza – let’s face it though, cheese makes everything better.
Happy Bank Holiday peeps.
