TAMAR REGATTA. [Newspaper Article] — Launceston Courier — 20 December 1841

TAMAR REGATTA. The three great essentials for the full enjoy- ment of this annual fete, the three indispensa- ble ingredients for filling the cup of pleasure on such an occasion viz. — fine weather, fine wind, and fine women— combined their happiest in- fluences on Tuesday and Wednesday last, to render the festivities of those days the most agreeable and delightful that were ever experi- enced on this side of the island. There is a fascination about these Regattas, which admits of no description ; they appear to be gifted with a peculiar power of attraction, irresistable both to young and old, and their extraordinary in- fluence in elevating the spirits and animating the soul, is like the effect of sudden inspiration. People of all classes, ages, and dispositions equally participate in the enjoyment which they afford, and it is really astonishing to see how quickly the cares of business, and wordly troubles of all other kinds are momentarily forgotten, or suppressed, in the universa...
