[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Would you like a bright and breezy day out on the beautiful River Derwent? Would you like to see the action up close at the Kettering Wooden Boat Rally or the Royal Hobart Regatta? Would you like to see a real wind-driven ship under sail and learn about how they work? Did we mention delicious food and beverages served by your own personal crew?
Don’t miss the Channel Classic on Sunday 7 February and Monday 8 February. We have two proud ships lined up – the Rhona H and the Windeward Bound – ready to take you on a full day adventure from Hobart to Kettering (Sunday) or Kettering to Hobart (Monday).
On Sunday, join your ship at Elizabeth Street Pier for the three-hour sail down to Kettering, where you’ll have a spectacular view of all the yachting action from your VIP position on the water. In the afternoon you can join the festivities at the Kettering Yacht Club before boarding your luxury coach, returning to Hobart at 6:00 pm.
If Monday is your choice, you’ll board your coach early at Brooke Street Pier in Hobart for the 50-minute transfer to Kettering, where you will join your ship for an exhilarating sail up the river to join the Classic and Wooden Boat Parade of Sail at the Royal Hobart Regatta. Join the fleet passing in review at Australia’s oldest maritime event. Disembark in the afternoon at Elizabeth Street Pier.
Go on, it’s exciting, it makes a great outing for a couple or a gift for the boat tragics in the family, at a affordable cost that includes transport, meals and an absolute waterfront position for these two great events. Book now with the ship of your choice directly:
