Dinghy Day

A Family Fun Day

Location:  Wairau Bay

Date: TBA early Jan, 2025

Time: 10am


Join us for a fantastic Family Fun Day, where you can bring along your picnic and gather your children and grandchildren for an unforgettable day of excitement!

The highlight of the event is our Dinghy Day racing, a thrilling opportunity for you to showcase your boating skills by navigating through challenging buoys and competing in low-speed races around a compact circuit.

For those eager to participate in the races, we recommend arriving at Wairau Bay at around 10 am to set up your boats, complete the registration process, and receive your designated race number. Each boat can have two participants, each with their unique number, ensuring separate heats and exhilarating competition. A pre-race briefing will be held at 10:30 am, with racing commencing at 11 am.

We encourage you to bring a picnic lunch, swimwear, life jackets, water pistols, kayaks if you have them, and invite your children, grandchildren, friends, and anyone else who enjoys a day of water-based fun. And, of course, if you intend to participate in the races, don't forget to bring your dinghy along!

Limited to 5hp (preferred engine: Seagull). Your boat does not have to be wooden. Adults must watch their children at all times, they cannot stay without an adult supervisor. Life jackets are essential. Please sign in on arrival. Registration is required.
