Aaron & Partners named as key sponsor for Chester Regatta


Aaron & Partners are proud to support the 284-year-old Chester Regatta event for the 14th consecutive year

Chester-based law firm Aaron & Partners LLP has been confirmed as key sponsor for this year’s Chester Regatta ­– the oldest rowing event of its kind in the world.

This is the fourteenth year the firm has supported the Regatta, which is a cooperative effort by all the rowing clubs on the River Dee in Chester and is run solely by volunteers. Chester Regatta is an inclusive regatta open to those with physical or cognitive impairments.

With hundreds of competitors and spectators expected, the Regatta takes place on the River Dee on Saturday June 10, 2017. The event includes rowers and scullers of all capabilities and is open to entries from rowers with a physical or cognitive impairment.

John “Bonner” Davies, President of Chester Regatta, added: “On behalf of everyone at Chester Regatta, we’re delighted that Aaron & Partners has strengthened its support of our annual event, sponsoring the City of Chester Trophy, the Pierce Trophy, the Dee Challenge Cup, the Heronbridge Bowl, the Northgate Brewery Cup and the Eaton Plate.

“The first recorded Chester Regatta took place back in 1733, which makes this the oldest regatta of its type in the world. In the past it has been called “the Henley of the North”, with reference to the international regatta Henley Royal on the Thames, which dates from 1839. Chester Regatta also has around 100 years more history than the Oxford-Cambridge Boat Race, which dates from 1829!”

Jan Chillery, Secretary of Chester Regatta, added: “Chester Regatta’s innovative and inclusive race format is a credit to our city. We can’t wait for this year’s Regatta to get underway. It takes a lot of organisation but it’s well worth the effort when we see local adult and junior rowers compete against crews from the North West and beyond.”

The Chester Regatta will welcome The Honourable Lord Mayor of Chester Councillor Razia Daniels and Lord Mayor Consort Mr Stephen Daniels as guests on the day. The Lord Mayor attends as Admiral of the Dee, a title, which dates from 1354.
