The Traditional Boat Squadron of Australia is hosting a National Marine Swap Meet and Boatfest for Canberra on 15th May 2010 and Norglass will be there.
The Traditional Boat Squadron of Australia is the ACT chapter of the Wooden Boat Association of Australia. Their aims are to foster the use, construction, restoration and public display of traditional boats on a national basis.
Australia at present has no large marine swap meet, and Canberra’s central location and beautiful yet quiet waterways make it the perfect location for an annual, national event.
The event will be held on the Lake Burley Griffin foreshore and involve on water activities and land based stalls and displays, with participants coming from the ACT and interstate.
The marine focused swap meet beginning early in the morning, the regatta, Grand Parade of vessels and display stalls taking place throughout the day.
