2015's Regatta and Wooden Boat Festival again was a great day for all. The attendance numbers of boats was down a little and the day got off to a bit of a slow start due to early inclement weather. However, as the skies cleared the spectator numbers managed to reach the usual numbers.

The Davistown Putt Putt Regatta & Wooden Boat Festival remains highly ranked among the top entertainment events for all ages on the beautiful Central Coast of NSW.

The on-water festivities were well received by the spectators, with many boats and crews spending considerable time dressing up for the occasion. The appearance again of the NSW Corps of Marines re-enactment group was well received by spectators and boaties alike. Their cannon proved a very effective starting mechanism for the Putt Putt Challenges and the Regatta and their display of historic weaponry and other artefacts was a great attraction to all.

The Deepwater Dragon Boat Club again held a couple of exciting demonstration races. These boats provide exciting racing and we are looking forward to seeing them again in 2016.

Results of the various categories of judging can be found in the link below.

As always, we express our grateful appreciation to all who attended and helped to make the day successful. A special "Thank You" to the numerous volunteers who gave up their time to ensure that we can continue to hold this fantastic event every year.
