17th Annual Flotilla
Saturday 8th February 2014
9th February 2013 - The 16th annual Lake Rotoiti Classic & Wooden
Boat parade tradition of fine weather continued with the spectacle of around
seventy five official entrant boats parading on Lake Rotoiti and a very
large flotilla of spectator craft making this day probably the biggest
gathering of boats on Lake Rotoiti ever.
As usual, following the Karakia and blessing, the flotilla was led out from the Okere Arm by the magnificent Waka "Tieke" and " Te Auheke" towards Okawa Bay.
The flotilla then split into three with the slow boats and yachts proceeding straight to Wairau Bay, the launches to Wairau Bay via Okawa Bay and the speedboats to Otaramarae and back to Wairau Bay where a beach picnic was enjoyed by all participants.
is to be held 10am at the Fire Station, Okere Road on Sunday 2nd June 2013
A get-together and morning tea will follow (always a fun catch up!!). A plate of food for morning tea would be appreciated.
We are loosing a couple of committee members this year, so if any of you would consider joining us, it would be wonderful! It won't take up much of your time and is actually quite fun to be involved with! Please let Rachel know soon as nominations need to be in 48 hours prior to the AGM...
There will be a
farewell for Lindsay Brighouse
Okere Falls Store
Thursday the 23rd of May at 5pm.
We are all going to miss him so much around the lake.
For those of you who are new members, Lindsay is one of the original three founding members and he has been involved ever since with the running of the parade and other events around the lake. He has done a fantastic job over the years with the commentary and publicity for the main parade!
