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.
