Hobart certainly turned on the fine weather for those of us who braved crossing "the strait" either by air or ferry for the “My State Wooden Boat Festival”.
The displays of boats ranged from the 4' kids paddle boats in Constitution dock to tall ships and all were decked out with their bunting. There were an abundance of WBA members at the festival including one of our younger ones - Orlando Yen with his Dad Andrew, to our "elder Statesman" Alan Chinn with Jenny, great to see them there enjoying the festivities. If you haven't been to the festival before then for boaties it is a must for your bucket list. Start planning for 2017! Warning! You may suffer from a serious case of "boat envy" afterwards.Read more...
Albert Park Lake, Sunday 24 May 2014
This is the rescheduled date for The Amazing Raid, a fun and challenging activity with on and off-water components.
By the end of The Amazing Raid you will know a lot more about Albert Park Lake – perhaps too much. To participate in all aspects of the event you will need a boat, so bring your own, book one of the club’s boats, or scrounge a ride on another member’s boat. If you are prepared to walk around the lake you can compete in most of the challenges without a boat.Find out more, and register here
Have you recently had a great day on the water, voyaged from A to B successfully, or completed a small project such as a locker lid or new spar? Our members would love to hear about it!
We also encourage members to share their achievements and experiences at club nights. Bring along photos, drawings or examples and feel welcome to talk about these as part of the meeting.
The Wooden Boat Association was formed in 1989 for people who enjoy wooden boats and wooden boat building.
Members appreciate wooden boats for their aesthetic qualities, the beauty of the boats and the materials from which they are constructed, and the pure romance of wooden boats.
In this age of mass production, each wooden boat is as individual as her owner.
We have 31 guests and no members online
