Tony Charnock took these incredible photos of the event's annual three-legged race, which takes competitors around six of Sidmouth's pubs.

The race was certainly thirsty work for participants who tried to complete the course as quickly as they could.

There is still plenty to enjoy at Sidmouth Regatta this evening and on Sunday.
