We have been known to do some mad things at the MyState Bank Australian Wooden Boat Festival, and we haven’t stopped dreaming up new events. In 2019, we’ll be making a serious attempt to claim an Australian record for the largest number of ships-in-bottles ever gathered in one place. You can help, and there’s no cost to get involved. Simply gather your collection, dust them off and bring them along to Mac 02 (Hunter Street, Hobart), sign in and display as many as you can. Haven’t got a ship-in-a-bottle? Ask a friend or simply pick one up in a novelty store – any size, any type counts, from the smallest souvenir to the largest work of art. Be there between 8:30am – 12.30 pm on Saturday Feb. 9 to registered and or drop off your boats. Counting of ships-in-bottles will commence from 1pm by 2 independent Judges.
Collections of your ships-in-bottles should be done between 2.30pm and 3.30pm the same day, unless other arrangements have been made by the AWBF officials. Entry is free for boat owners and the public.
