The 14th biennial South Australian Wooden Boat Festival is on its way to the Goolwa Wharf precinct, and the organisers are searching for volunteers.
This classic event on February 21-22, 2015 is one of our state’s biggest and best festivals on the entertainment and tourism calendar, and a special website has been set up to register as a volunteer – and enter an exhibit or boat. Visit: www.woodenboatfestival.com.au
The South Australian Wooden Boat Festival is presented by the Alexandrina Council, and being one of its significant events it has engaged the professional event services of jennie bell ink to plan and conduct the 2015 festival on its behalf.
Since a small band of men, headed by Roly Bartlett, one of South Australia’s River Murray and Goolwa Wharf legends especially through his involvement with the P.S. Oscar W., met in the late 80s at the nearby historic Armfield Slipway shed and planned the first festival in 1989, the event has evolved significantly.
Numerous dedicated volunteers enabled the festival to grow, and now everyone has a chance to help enhance the international reputation of our wooden boat festival by becoming a volunteer.
Your role as a volunteer may include tasks as a welcome and information guide, be part of the site gate and mechandising personnel, or offer support in boating, mooring and general marina duties plus various other roles that will make you feel a real part of this fabulous two-day spectacular.
Coast Lines is proud to launch a new series on My Wooden Boat in the lead-up to the 2015 South Australian Wooden Boat Festival
