History – Way back in 1985 several locals from the Hoods Landing Delta Swamp couldn’t agree on who had the fastest Seagull Outboard. So it was decided that a race was the only way to settle the debate. That original race started from the the Karapiro dam & finished at the Tasman Sea. That inaugural trip took 4 days to complete, & it’s unclear who the winner was. The trip is now an annual voyage. It’s enjoyed a continuous history of community support. This family event has the main emphasis is on finishing & having lots of fun.

4th & 5th Easter Weekend April 2015
Toronto Classic BoatFest – Lake Macquarie, Aust.

Lake Macquarie Classic Boatfest invites the participation and exhibition of traditional and classic boats – steam, sail, motor and oared craft of all sizes from all over Australia. Boats must be of a design prior to 1975 but may have been built at any time, from any material. Wooden boats naturally qualify as pre 1975 design. Everyone is welcome to this free waterfront event at Regatta Park, Toronto, on Lake Macquarie. We expect to have some 80 boats on display on the water and foreshore.
