20 years anniversary
“Regattas have been held at Davistown since the early 1900’s and celebrate the boat building history of the region”

2017 Regatta introduced some format changes

The 2017 Regatta introduced some format changes to the water based activities including shortening of the Putt Putt Challenge to enable the spectators to be involved for the duration of the event and a change to the course for the Grand Parade. These changes were strongly supported by the boat owners and spectators alike. The Dragon Boats also provided some on water excitement and the local scouting troops provided great entertainment with a raft race – unfortunately against the run of the tide.

In 2018 we intend to continue with those and other changes to promote the importance of the water based activities.
