Opening of the Summer Boating Season

Saturday 29 November, 12.00pm - 5.00pm

Sanctuary Cove will welcome an age old tradition, largely recognised by the marine industry around the world, with the Opening of the Summer Boating Season on Saturday, November 29.

The event will be held from midday and will see 30 vessels congregate at the Sanctuary Cove Marina for the annual Blessing of the Fleet bestowed by Father John Khoai from the Holy Family Catholic Parish Runaway Bay and a firework salute by Gold Coast Waterways Authority Chairman Gary Baildon.

The Opening of the Summer Boating season encourages boating enthusiasts, local residents and visitors to the Sanctuary Cove Marine Village on the day to celebrate the boating lifestyle and pay homage to the powers-that-be for a season of safe and bountiful boating.

Come along to The Village Green from midday to witness all the fun. A free, unique and fun-filled day out for the whole family!
