News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

Thanks guys,

Great Pics - Has anyone got any information on or pictures of the Whitstable Regatta from the 1792 to 1830s? I have come across a couple of newspaper reports but neither mention the hoys that I am interested in and there are no illustrations. I'd love to know the names of the boats that took place after 1792 and who won the silver cup etc.

Hi Pierre,

Not found any pictures of those vessels in particular, but I found pictures of hoys in general.

The vessel to the right of the pier in this painting 'A View of Margate Pier in 1819':

Has anyone got a decent picture of a Kentish Hoy of the type used c.1790-1830 especially the Thomas & Stephen or the Canterbury, both vessels sailed between London and Whitstable.
