Flotilla for Kids 2017
Registrations are now open!

What is Flotilla for Kids?
This event sees a colour spectacular flotilla of boats that are 'themed and decorated' motoring up the Port River from Outer Harbor into the heart of Port Adelaide. The boats will then circle to 'salute the crowd' wharfside in Inner Harbour.
It is a fun day our for seriously ill children and their families to participate in the largest flotilla of boats ever seen on the Port River. Plus there will be plenty of land-based entertainment for those watching from the dock!
Register your boat and be a part of our Flotilla for Kids in 2017!
Please note: registration is only necessary for people wishing to enter a boat. Spectators are invited to come down to Port Adelaide and enjoy the day along with the wharfside markets and watch the Flotilla sail past!
Information for Participants
Registration packs will be delivered to the address that you supply with your registration from mid January. Included in the packs will be your 90cm x 60cm Flotilla Flag, as well as a map and instructions for the day.
Any late registrations will be required to collect their packs on the day of the event at the Royal South Australian Yacht Squadron (RSAYS). Electronic copies of instructions will be emailed prior to the event to these participants.
In 2017, rather than grouped by motoring speed, boats will instead be divided into two groups. The One and All, Officer of the Day and official working vessels will be the 'Lead Vessels'. All other participants will follow as the 'Flotilla Fleet'. Details on the assembly points for these groups are included in your packs.
Boats will assemble in their groups in the Port River Basin, outside the Container Wharf and International Terminal between 10:00am and 10:30am before heading off on their journey down the river at 10:45am.
The Birkenhead, Diver Derrick ad Mary Mackillop Bridges are scheduled to be raised between 12:00pm and 2:00pm on the day.
