Check out footage from the 2014 event:
Back in the early 1990s, some nostalgia buffs with old race boats were musing about the success of the annual Antique Boat Show at the Antique Boat Museum. The idea to hold a similar event with vintage race boats was tossed out and caught hold. Bill Munro chaired a large group of committed enthusiasts who hosted the first-ever Vintage Race Boat Regatta in August of 1992. This biennial event have brought together some of the greatest names in racing, and likewise many of the most famous boats of all time. Such greats as Riggs Smith, Bob Schroeder, Fred Alter and Buddy Byers were on the original organizing committee. Many others were in critical positions making it all happen. Over the years, the Antique Raceboat Regatta has given owners, drivers, historians and public an opportunity to see the greatest boats of all time performing in the water with dramatic rooster tails and the roar of powerful engines.
And just think, all of our vintage Regattas started in Clayton in 1992, and Clayton is still the largest event on the vintage raceboat circuit. This is a huge gathering, come join all the fun !!!
