2013 Festival – another success story!
Held on the weekend of 1-2-3 November, this year’s event was very well received – the only downer being the strong southerly wind on Sunday which caused the cancellation of the Grand Parade.
Friday’s bbq was well attended by 100 or more people, as was Saturday’s picnic at Paradise Point.
Saturday also featured an art exhibition in association with Montague Arts & Crafts Society which was very well received by all.
“The Jazz Pack” supplied the music for Jazz on the Water and a new “Buy,Sell or Swap” session was well attended and many items changed hands.
Saturday’s fund-raising dinner and auction was a wonderful evening of fun and food and raised funds to help the committee continue with the festival.
Sunday’s wind blew away the Grand Parade, but the farewell bbq was a great event, with Eric Simes’ self-crafted boat “Legend” being named Best Boat for 2013 by the panel of 5 judges.
The inaugural Art in the Boatsheds award went to Narooma artist Margaret Moran’s watercolour “Waiting for the Men”, which also happened to feature one of our regular festival attendee boats “Melkirdan”.
Raffle prizes went to: Phil Rose from “Dulcie Rose”, Terry Lance from “Thumper”, John Caldwell from”Doc” and Tony Decorte from “La Rochelle”.
