      Celebration of Wooden Boats

      Grafton, Northern NSW, Australia - Friday 6th and Saturday 7th Nov 2009

      An invitation for anyone with a wooden boat to participate.  Be it a canoe, kayak, sailing boat, speedboat, or steam boat, bring it along for both static and on-the-water displays.  This is a great opportunity to display your pride and joy on the mighty Clarence River and take part in the 75th Grafton Jacaranda festival.  Prizes will be awarded.

      Owners of boats over 8m in length will need to provide public liability insurance.  All owners are asked to provide to the organisers an A4 sheet of the particulars of their boat.  It is recommended that participants arrive on the preceding Thursday to avoid the rush and also to take part in Thursdays “Jacaranda Day” celebrations.
