Our reporter Bob Cruwys has spent the day at Dartmouth Royal Regatta, looking at all the organisation behind such a popular event, with so many boats, competitors and tourists involved.
He took a few photos along the way:

Today marked the start of the annual Dartmouth Royal Regatta. The first event took place in 1822 and over the years it's become much more than yachting and boating, as Bob Cruwys reports.
The first event took place nearly 200 years ago.
Since then it has become much more than yachting and boating:
Dartmouth’s 190th Royal Regatta opened today.
The Regatta is based around a schedule of rowing and sailing events, but also incorporates a busy programme of activities including air displays, fireworks, a large fair, and many other smaller events that happen in and around the town centre.
Nearly 100,000 people visit Dartmouth during the Regatta period, making making it one of the largest public events in the South West.
