Silly Boat Regatta Countdown

1967 to 2018 – 50+ Years of Opening Doors

The Nanaimo Child Development Centre want to thank all of those who supported the Silly Boat Regatta in 2018. Our grateful thanks for such incredible community support – over $110,000 was raised!

In 2019 we will be celebrating 35 years of Silliness!

We are happy to announce a new Presenting Sponsor – Shoreline Orthodontics will be joining us for the 2019 Silly Boat Regatta which will be happening on – Sunday, July 14th – 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 2019, 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
