2018 Inverloch Classic Wooden Dinghy Regatta

Australia Day Long Weekend 26th to 28th of January

Come and experience some of Inverloch’s maritime history and see the beautifully restored classic wooden dinghies at the 2018 Regatta.

As a special addition to the event this year, we are also celebrating the 90th anniversary of the International Moth Class which made its debut in Inverloch in 1928 as the Inverloch Eleven Footer. We are expecting Len Morris’s original creation, “Olive” to make an appearance along with the original Inverloch Cup trophy. It will be amazing to see the progression of the class to the modern foiling Moths which are sailed throughout the world today and have even influenced the design of the America’s Cup yachts.

The dinghies will be sailing on Anderson Inlet and displayed along the beach on all three days. Get up close to the craft, chat with the owners and marvel at the craftsmanship and beautiful timbers. Also be sure to visit the free historical and model display in the basketball stadium.
