A Day for all the Family
Join us for the 2019 Regatta on Sunday 20th October
Many putt-putt boats are still in use on Brisbane Water today. In the Davistown area over 30 of the classics can be seen on their moorings.
Putt-putt boats usually range in length from 14-18 feet and are powered by either single or twin cylinder 2 to 10 hp Blaxland/Chapman, Simplex or Clay inboard petrol driven engines all of which make the very familiar putt-putt exhaust sound. Boats today will also often be powered by small one or 2 cylinder diesel engines.
Reintroduced as an annual event via a quorum of enthusiasts in 1996/1997, the Regatta is now one of the principal events on the Gosford City calendar.
The Davistown Putt Putt Regatta & Wooden Boat Festival attracts a huge amount of quality putt putts travelling from as far as Queensland and the ACT. The 10th Anniversary event in 2007 attracted a field of over 100 Putt Putts.
