The Friendly Bay Boat Society will be hosting the 2014 Oamaru Harbour Regatta on Sunday along with the North Otago Club Terra Nova Trophy, in conjunction with the North Otago Yacht and Powerboat Club.
The regatta events include seagull outboard motor races, sailing races, rowing races, Scott’s Own sea scouts cutters and a navy challenge race at Friendly Bay.
The first race will begin at 1pm, with registrations opening at 11am for a gold coin donation.
Beach activities will include sand castle competitions and boat displays, with live music and refreshments also on hand to steady the sea legs.
The North Otago Yacht Club Terra Nova Trophy racing series will take place over Saturday and Sunday outside the harbour.
