Wooton Park - Current Development Plan


We have some exciting news. Our recent Tavares Spring and Fall Thunder Vintage Race Boat Regattas were the best attended and most successful events so far. In fact, our Tavares CRA Regattas are now recognized as the biggest and best managed events on the APBA Vintage Circuit. But our recent Regattas were also the most expensive and exhausting for the event organizers and volunteers.



The expenses to run our APBA sanctioned regattas are becoming more significant as the cost of APBA sanctions, insurance, crane rentals, tractor rentals, ambulance services, safety teams and many other important facets to make the events safe and enjoyable continue to increase. In fulfilling our mission, we operate as efficiently as possible and work very hard to break even at our events. The help of sponsors like the Lake County Economic Development Commission, the City of Tavares and various private donors aid significantly to make our efforts successful.


And now we need your financial support and volunteer spirit to keep us moving forward. We hope you will be generous in donating and offering some volunteer time. Let's all work together to ensure that our Tavares CRA Regattas continue !!!
