The Chief Islander of Saint Helena's region of Tristan da Cunha has declared Friday, May 26, 2017, as the date for this year's annual Ratting Day public holiday in Saint Helena's region of Tristan da Cunha.

The Ratting Day public holiday is usually announced on the day before, or even on the morning of the actual public holiday (2016-04-29, 2015-05-15, 2014-05-02, 2013-05-02, 2011-05-26, 2010-05-21, 2009-06-03, 2008-06-05, 2007-06-18, and 2006-05-11), as the ratting events require cooperative weather.

On the few occasions when it was announced a few days in advance (2012-04-16), the Ratting Day public holiday in Saint Helena's region of Tristan da Cunha often had to be postponed due to bad weather (2012-04-20 and 2006-05-11).
