Port Hacking Putters Regatta

On Sunday 3rd February, there was a Putters and wooden boat regatta. Over 60 boats took part, travelling at a speed of 4 knots up the Port Hacking river in Sydney’s south.

A putter is a boat that runs on diesel. They were used for fishing or picnics in the past and today the owners really love and care for their boat. The traditional ones make a distinctive put put noise as they move.

There was a dress up competition as well.

The route started at Hungry Point near Gunnamatta Bay and took 2 hours to wind along the bays to finish at Lilli Pilli.
