A new history of our oldest sporting event.
The Royal St. John’s Regatta is set to publically celebrate
its 200th anniversary. In this fascinating and entertaining history,
Jack Fitzgerald tells the story of the Regatta from its early days as
rollicking pond-side revelry to the more family-oriented event it is today. And
in the process, Fitzgerald uncovers evidence to suggest the race is not as old
nor as continuous as previously thought.
In Regatta: A New History, Fitzgerald rewrites the tale of
one of the most beloved civic events in North America.
