Henley-On-Todd Regatta

Done That
Wanna Do
Reg Smith was the creator of the Henley-On-Todd, which had its inaugural regatta in December 1962.

Earlier that year members of the Rotary Club of Alice Springs met for a picnic at 16 Mile Creek, where over a few beers they discussed ways to raise money for charity. Reg came up with the idea of holding a waterless 'Regatta' on the dry bed of the Todd River.

"Okay, what about the boats - do we tow them or push them?"
"Neither," said Reg. "We cut the bottoms out and carry them!"
