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

Putt Putts – A Dying Art? – Not at all

Put Putts are alive and well on Brisbane Water. Some of the most used Putt Putts in the area are Grand Tourer, Scallywag, Imp and Dodi. Each Friday – rain, hail or shine – one of these boats along with a normal (some might say abnormal) crew of 3 all dressed in Hawaiian Shirts can be seen heading to a different Brisbane Waters venue. From the Gosford Sailing Club to Koolewong Marina and the BoatHouse to Hardy’s Bay Bistro and RSL, these boats wile away a Friday afternoon while the crew discusses Bars, Beer and Bulls*!t. Anyone who wishes to join in, either in their own boat or aboard one of the ones listed (numbers restricted) is more than welcome. The BBB cruise departs the Putt Putt Wharf at Scandretts Boatshed, Davistown around 2 pm each Friday.

The workmanship on the boats and the pride shown by their owners is to be seen to be believed. The boats were from as far afield as Brisbane, Lismore, Lake Macquarie and Davistown and […]
