Waitara River

Saturday 27th January 2024

Hello all, It’s time to dust off the dinghy and seagull motor, give the motor a quick once over and plan a trip to the Waitara river.

We have decided on Saturday 27th January for the next event. High tide is at 11:48am, all participants to be present 10am for the safety briefing, then the racing will commence at 10:30am. The usual 4 races again but I am open to suggestions from anyone.

Lunch break 12:00 ~ 12:45

Any newcomers that have not been to Waitara before.  This is a very family friendly gathering of seagull addicts and there is no charge to enter, bring your own food and drink, (no alcohol allowed until later), a portaloo will be there.  Your boat must have a bailer, oars or paddle and tow rope, lifejackets must be worn at all times on the water, there will be 2 safety boats in attendance.

After 5pm we will head to the local T&C club where a meal and tipples can be enjoyed and the all important placings will be revealed.

There is no entry fee or prizes, we do it for the fun of it.
