Spring Thunder Regatta
March 17-19, 2017
Regatta Registration Form
Registration cutoff was Sunday - now we
finalize Hot Pit layout and vintage heats !!!
past will come alive as the vintage and classic race boats of
bygone eras return to Wooton Park in
Tavares, Florida for our
Thunder Regatta. Tavares is
major stop on the Florida Vintage Race Boat Circuit with over 75 beautifully
restored vintage and classic race boats running demonstration
laps on a 1 mile oval course
on beautiful Lake Dora. In
addition to seeing and hearing these unique and beautiful boats
run, spectators are invited to view them close-up in the pit
area at Wooton Park on both Saturday and Sunday. We will
be running large heats of all the APBA vintage classes, including
outboards, classic glass, small hydros, mid-hydros, large hydros, flatbottoms, skiffs, speedsters, gold cuppers, and fire
breathing grand prix hydros. The sights and sounds will be just
magnificent and admission is free, so come join all the fun !!!
And joining the local
fleet of vintage race boats during
the winter months when the northern summer vintage events are in hibernation, the northern snow birds are increasingly hauling their
beautifully restored vintage and classic race boats down to Florida to
enjoy the sunny and warm Florida weather and to participate on our
Florida Vintage Race Boat Circuit.
With the flat
water on the small inland Florida lakes, these regattas
are attracting large boat counts with well over 75 vintage and classic race boats at the
last several events, along with huge crowds. The regatta participants have fun running
their beautifully restored vintage race boats at speed on a race course in the warm Florida sun, and
the public gets a chance to see, hear and experience the rich history of
racing. Admission is free, so come join all the fun for our
next event !!!
