Weekend Sat 9th Sun 10th April 2016
Yorke Peninsula’s Saltwater Classic, Stansbury and Port Vincent, South Australia.

Yorke Peninsula’s Saltwater Classic is a special event for enthusiasts and admirers of wooden and classic boats. These vessels have been faithfully restored by their owners to keep afloat some of the great traditions of boat building. The regatta is open to all sail and power boats, but with a focus on classic craft. The Australian Maritime Museum defines a classic boat as “any vessel with unique and enduring qualities.” Put simply, beauty is in the eye of the beholder! The biennial event attracts people from across Australia to parade their boats in the waters off the sister towns of Stansbury and Port Vincent, and it draws spectators to a variety of water-based and shore-based attractions. Yorke Peninsula’s Saltwater Classic is a community-based event that has become a significant tourism feature on Yorke Peninsula.
