Classic & Wooden Boat Festival 2012
This year’s festival will be more intimate, allowing visitors to explore a selection of heritage vessels in more detail.
Vessel registrations are now open... sign up and display your vessel to the many interested visitors and boating enthusiasts who come to the festival. This is a fantastic way to network with other classic boat owners including representatives of the NSW Wooden Boat Association and the Halvorsen Club.
Visitors to the festival will see a diverse range of privately-owned heritage vessels, from graceful yachts and streamlined speedboats to tugs and workboats and tall ships HMB Endeavour and James Craig.
There’ll be plenty to keep visitors entertained with a range of activities including children’s crafts, talks and demonstrations.
Vessel registrations close 15 June 2012 with fees ranging from from $100 (ashore) to $100 - $200 afloat (depending on vessel size).
