Silly Boat Regatta Countdown

1967 to 2018 – Over 50 Years of Opening Doors

The Nanaimo Child Development Centre want to thank all of those who supported the Silly Boat Regatta in 2017. Our grateful thanks for such incredible community support - $112,000 was raised for the Centre.

2018 Silly Boat Regatta will be happening on – Sunday, July 15th – and we are so excited already with lots of new ideas. The Silly Boat Regatta would not happen without all our amazing volunteers and we have room on our planning group, so if you would like to joining us in planning for 2018, please contact Tracy at

Every year this event brings more fun for people of all ages with entertainment, food vendors, free activities for children and lots of silly racing. The Silly Boat Regatta is strongly supported by amazing local business sponsors. If your business might be interested in being a part of our event, please click on the Sponsor Link
