Join Coast Capital Savings and the Nanaimo Child Development Centre for this year's Silly Boat Regatta - taking place on Sunday July 19, 2015 at Maffeo Sutton Park!

What started out with 5 teams in 1984 has turned into a huge community event with nearly 50 teams and seeing 10,000 spectators & participants as they join together for a spectacular day full of fun, camaraderie and of course, silly antics! The Centre provides services to nearly 1800 children and their families annually. With huge support from an amazing community - so many children benefit from this event!

Race day festivities include boat building, music, performers, and free family activities. Boat building begins at 8 AM with Races starting at 1 PM, the Children's Mini Regatta sponsored by Woodgrove Centre at 11 AM - check the 'Event' tab for the 'Event Schedule' for more detailed information.

You'll want to be there to celebrate 31 years of Silly Boat history - all in support of the Nanaimo Child Development Centre.
