Lake Rotoiti Classic and Wooden Boat Gathering and 25th Parade at Waitangi Weekend

Event Date Saturday 5 February 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


COME AND JOIN ONE OF NEW ZEALANDS GREAT BOATING EVENTS

Our 25th annual boat parade and fun weekend is 4th February 2022, Waitangi weekend, and we would love to see as many classic or wooden boats of any type register for a modest fee to join our parade, and make it the biggest ever!

On the Friday night, an optional Captain’s briefing dinner at the VR Rotorua Lakeside Resort, and the parade starts around 10.30 in the Okere arm of the lake the next morning, at no cost to spectators.

We are expecting around 100 boats to parade past the reserve in line, very many of them historical and well decorated wooden launches with costumed crews, as well as every other type and size of small boat imaginable- sailed, rowed or powered, including some strange ones like the vintage tiny Personal Water Craft. A commentary describes each boat as it passes.

We are expecting to have the parade started by a real cannon firing, and hopefully led by one or more traditional local Māori Waka.

Following parading by the bigger boats around Okawa Bay, the boats all park up for the afternoon along the beach where everyone enjoys their picnic while on the beachside reserve the fun and games start.

Yes, of course there will be the usual bobbing for lollies, sack races, egg throwing, tug-o-war and the great Rotoiti yellow duck hunt for the kids. For the adults, the boats are all lined up for inspection by other club members and some, like the steamboats, usually do a demonstration sail past.
