Kettering Wooden Boat Rally
Long weekend 8th, 9th & 10th February 2014

Enjoy Being Aboard a Weekend of Wooden Boats

The Kettering Yacht Club and the Wooden Boat Guild of Tasmania invite you to join in the third rally of wooden boats on the D’Entrecasteaux Channel.

Sailing vessels, motor boats and dinghies are all welcome to join the fun, but all participating vessels must have wood as their principal construction material.

 
 
 

Briefly:

    This time we've added to the program:
  • More relaxed starts for the Sunday sailing races (no more trying to find out what time to start - it'll all be published up front:-)
  • We'll be joined by the craft and people from the Tawe Nunnugah Raid - small boats sailing around from Franklin over several nights.
  • Rowing and paddling events on Saturday to link in with the Raid craft. Then you can also join in with the sailing on Sunday!

For the Sunday morning and afternoon sailing events starts will be in small groups at regular intervals - details will be in the sailing directions.

The Social side will be on again. There will be a Saturday evening meal and get together under canvas or in the new KYC Clubhouse, and informal meals on Friday evening and Sunday lunchtime, also at the new KYC Clubhouse.

The Rally dinner and prizegiving will be held at the new clubhouse on Sunday evening. Numbers are limited, so early booking is the way to go.
