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

Regatta Rockhoppers

Planning and Management of the Davistown Putt Putt Regatta includes a myriad of details to be planned and executed to ensure the safety of the very precious (and sometimes fragile) boats that enter the event. Not the least of these is the work done just prior to the day where our intrepid Rockhoppers contribute their time to ensure that the areas of rocks and old ballast along the shoreline are prominently marked to show the boat skippers where dangers may exist that could damage their craft. In previous years the job was ably managed by Mr Geoff Furniss who in 2017 handed the baton on to Stephen Hill and David Roach.

So in the days leading up to the event this year if you see two strangely dressed individuals placing warning signs along the waterfront give them a round of applause and if you watch for long enough one or both of them may end up in the water.
