Photos from Boat Day Thursday, 31 December 2020

The weather was actually great for Boat Day 2020 with blue skies and sunshine.

At least 100 people and 40 boats were part a fun and enjoyable day, ably MCed by Dominic Hayden and run by numerous volunteers.

Many thanks to all volunteers and participants.

For astonishingly good photos see Barry Jordan’s Flickr album: Waikawa Boat Races 2020. Three of his photos appear below.
