The Ashburton Sailing Club is holding a classic boat regatta. Members of the public are invited to come along & view the craft both on & off the water free of charge.

The regatta which commences at 10am, will include both powered & non powered craft, featuring old jet boats, hydroplanes, steam powered boats, traditional launches, sailing yachts, rowing skiffs & model boats.

This will be the third classic boat event that has been organised by the Ashburton Sailing Club & we hope that following the success of the event last year, this event will continue to grow in future years.

In addition to the programme, there will also be a social sailing race in the afternoon of Saturday 17th starting at 2pm. On Sunday 18th, the lake will be closed to other users until 1:00pm for safety reasons. This will allow powered and rowing craft to have their events on the water during this time free of other boating traffic. Sailing craft will take to the water in the afternoon.

There will be model yachts operating in Rotary Harbour - in front of the Lake House where there is a walkway/wharf that runs around the entire harbour area, this will allow other boats to be easily accessible to the public for viewing.
