The Inverloch Classic Wooden Dinghy Regatta

The Inverloch Classic Wooden Dinghy Regatta is about displaying classic wooden sailing dinghies both on and off the water, many of which were once common but are now becoming rare.   By focusing on the beauty of the wood crafting, rigging and history of these boats it is hoped people will appreciate them more fully and participate in their restoration and conservation.  Over the Australia Day Weekend the Regatta also highlights aspects of Inverloch’s unique seaside history.
