Small Wooden Boat Festival 2014
Sunday, July 27, 2014
Holland Park, Gibsons
The Sunshine Coast Museum and Archives’ Small Wooden Boat Festival is back again for Sea Cavalcade 2014. It’s a one-day show on Sunday, July 27th from 10am to 4pm in Holland Park in Gibsons. Don't miss it! We will have canoes, rowboats, kayaks, dinghies, daysailers and other wooden boats hand-built by enthusiastic amateurs and skilled professionals. Some of the boats on display will be vintage craft and some of them will be new creations using traditional as well as modern methods. The owners and builders will be there to talk to you about their boats, and share their pleasure in their craft. If you just like looking at beautiful things, this is the place to be. And if you've been thinking you'd like to build a wooden boat yourself some day, you'll find a lot of encouragement and experience here - so come on down to pick our brains!
If you've got a small wooden boat that you'd like to show, contact the organizer Martha Lutes at email@example.com or 886-0233 for details.
