2018 Official Regatta
Standings and Biographies

This is an updated standings list.  Pumpkin boat # 36 touched the dock on the north side of the dock and was not seen due to people on the dock assisting.  Review of a video and photographs confirms that #36 did touch the dock and shows which pumpkin boat was ahead and behind them. 
We apologize for the confusion.

2017 Windsor West Hants
Pumpkin Regatta
Single and Double Classes


Good morning from the Pumpkin Patch. We have been getting lots of inquiries about WHY the change in date for this years Regatta. In actual fact, the regatta date did not change...the date for the weigh-off was moved up one weekend. Historically, the weigh-off is held the first Saturday in October. That would have meant this years weigh-off would have been scheduled on Saturday, October 6...on Thanksgiving weekend, and the Regatta would have still been on Sunday, October 14.  As the Pumpkin Weigh-off is held at the Dill Farm, and at the request of the Dill family, the Pumpkin Festival Committee agreed with the request to move the Weigh-off date to Saturday, September 29, 2018

Congratulations to Eddy Shaw (ctr) from Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, whose hefty gourd tipped the scales
in 2017 at 1624 pounds.  Eddy's pumpkin set a new PEI record.  Second place went to Steam Mill grower, Fred Ansems (left), with a weight of 1244 pounds.  Finishing out the top three was Jeff Reid of Waterville with a pumpkin weight of 1180 pounds. 

Who will have the heaviest gourd this year?  Visit the Pumpkin Patch and check out the various varieties.
