Fairy Flotilla

Saturday 10 February, 10am

Owhanaki Bay  Waiheke Island
Free Event

Fly the rainbow flag, raft up and party afloat at beautiful Owhanaki Bay, Waiheke Island – or another location to be confirmed closer to the time, depending on the weather.

Attention all LGBTI boaties and friends! This is the fifth year that Auckland’s gay boating community has got together for a raft up. Encourage your mates to join the fun – big, small, power, sail, launches, yachts, runabouts, jet skis and other seaworthy vessels are all welcome. BYO boat.

The Fairy Flotilla will raft up starting at 10am on Saturday 10 February at Owhanaki Bay, which is easy to get to if travelling by ferry. Some boats will stay overnight, others just for an hour or two.

Skippers are responsible for crew safety. Along with rainbow flags and other festive regalia, we recommend that skippers bring extra lines to tie up alongside your new friends.
