Subject: RE: Folklore: Dingle Regatta: Why 'Hey ho' etc?
the standing up thing is indeed done in sydney - it is to represent the boats bobbing up and down on the regatta - but for some reason you only "do it" during the 3rd section of the tune..... maybe the sea is calmer in the other sections.
and we "diddily di" the 1st section instead of playing the tune after a couple of times through........
