Saturday 3rd December 2016
Waitara River Seagull Outboard Race, Taranaki, NZ

Proposed Itinerary
We hope to see everyone here by 9:00a.m.
The briefing will commence at 9.30am
The first race will be at 10am then next four races will begin on the hour at 11am 12pm 1pm and 2pm
A rowing regatta is on the same day so the course will not proceed under the
town bridge. There will be buoys in the river to mark the course.
Two safety boats will be on the river. High tide is 12:50 so there should be plenty of water for all races.
Boats to be numbered so they can be easily read from the riverbank.
There will be free hot drinks available at lunch time and a sav n sauce in
bread available with coin donations appreciated.
The T & C Club on West Quay is making a room available for us to socialise in and buy evening bistro meals.
No BYO.  It is located just down the road from the event. Race results will be announced there.
