Entry options are by Series or as Casual entrants It is possible to enter the Series after the first race but if you enter and participate as a casual entry it’s no longer possible to enter the Series. So best to enter the Series and either pay the series entry fee in advance or by race.

THOSE WERE THE DAYS
Sailing Fashions - around 1934
Although this old photo is a bit grainy, I thought you might like the attire! That big hat must have been well tied-down, the beret wouldn't do much good as a sunshield, and a suit and tie?

25th LAKE ROTOITI WOODEN BOAT PARADE – 4-6 February 2022
The organisers of the annual Lake Rotoiti parade warmly invite CYA members to attend their 25th celebration parade in 2022.
They are keen to help keep our members' costs down, so alongside a very low token entry fee and discounted optional buffet dinner on the Friday night, they have arranged a discounted rate at the Lakeside 4 star hotel (which has its own marina). This will be on a first come, first served basis, as there is a limited amount of trailer parking and jetty spaces.
For members who might want to join us, if they simply register an interest in coming by phone or email in the next few weeks, we can give them more detailed information and in due course an entry form for the parade day.
We would love to hear what you are doing in in the Bay of Islands, Napier, Wellington, Lyttelton, Port Chalmers and absolutely anywhere there is a classic boat in the water!
Your contributions and ideas would be so welcome - and please do let us know if you are restoring a vessel, planning an event or would just like to share a classic experience with us.
We LOVE to hear from you and share your story.
Also, if you've got good quality photos of vessels you think would be of interest to Sheerlines readers, please send a .jpg, .tif or .png, with details, to Robyn firstname.lastname@example.org. This includes vessels of all sizes and types - I don't have many launches or classic dinghies.
