The 18th annual Classic & Wooden Boat Parade showcases Lake Rotoiti's (North Island) resident launches along with many other trailerable classics from all around New Zealand.

In the past we have seen boats from wooden kayaks, wooden dinghys, wooden steam powered boats, various wooden yachts, speedboats up to a large flotilla of resident launches and expect a similar turnout of about 70 boats this year.

The oldest will be from the 1890's up to replicas built in more recent years.

The flotilla will parade around the Okere Arm near SH33, Okere Falls from 10am and then at 10.30am the parade will move off to cruise to Wairau Bay where a picnic will be held for participants.
The slower boats lead off first and will proceed directly to Wairau Bay, faster boats including launches will parade around Okawa bay and then proceed to Wairau Bay, speedboats will go to Otaramarae and then to Wairau Bay.

Anyone wishing to enter their wooden boat is welcome, all details including committee members contact information is on the website.
