It is with a great deal of regret that the Organising Committee has reached a decision to cancel the 2020 Davistown Putt Putt Regatta & Wooden Boat Festival.
The Committee has been monitoring the current situation regarding the outbreaks of COVID-19 in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland, the changing public health measures and the high likelihood that the virus will still be in the general community in November. Our particular structure on the Davistown Waterfront means that we cannot control crowd numbers and cannot adequately police appropriate social distancing. This, coupled with our concerns for the local community and the likely influx of visitors, has meant that we had no other option.
This was a tough decision to reach especially coming on the heels of an extremely successful 2019 event. We all look forward to being able to run bigger and better events in 2021.
The cancellation also applies to the Putt Putt Charity Dinner and the Kids with Cancer Heritage Ferry Challenge.
The Committee would like to thank our major sponsors – Central Coast Council, Mitre10 Kincumber, Central Coast Motor Group, Davistown RSL, Edge Real Estate Saratoga, Central Coast Floormaster, Bendigo Bank – for once again supporting us and we hope to see you back for the 2021 event.
