The Great Annual British Seagull Waikato River Regatta. NZ

The Longest Seagull Outboard Regatta in the World.

Full details here for the Waikato Regatta

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.
