Saturday 17th February
Our members have been invited to participate in the upcoming Kaiapoi Boat Show.
Unfortunately, this date coincides with the Pleasant Point Yacht Club’s Classic Boats Race that will also attract some of us. However, the Kaiapoi Boat Show and River Carnival will be a great event and it will appeal to many classic boat owners.
Please give this invitation your support if you are able and complete the registration form attached.
The carnival is going to show off the new developments along the town centre riverbanks with several hours of activity on the water. It will make use of the Red Zone to the north of the river, next to the New World Supermarket,
The Classic boats will form the Eastern side of the show area with a strip ten metres deep and 80 to 90 metres long, so there will be room for a good number of boats.
River Carnival Parade.
The organisers are particularly keen to have Classic boats participating in this. Unfortunately, the confined space of the river is not that good for sailing, and it’s impossible in a NW wind.
There is space to accommodate boats up to the largest trailerable sizes. A 40m x 6m marquee will be central to the Boat Show area and will have space for at least 12 display areas (3m x 5m) under cover.
Please follow THIS LINK to register your boat or boats.
