This Weekend: Antique boats on show in Nelson

From Nights, 9:15 pm on 1 March 2024

Every Friday, we bring you some of the most interesting events and happenings coming up in Aotearoa this weekend - from the community fairs to the massive concerts.

Nelson is in for two days of hydromatic relaxation for the 24th annual NZ Antique and Classic Boat Show.

The show has been held at the beautiful St Arnaud in the Nelson Lakes National Park since 1999, and you can see everything from classic racing boats, pedal-powered catamarans, and painstakingly restored clinkers.

Pete Rainey is the organiser of the event and he joins Emile Donovan.

Three wooden boats glide along a glassy lake. Steep, forested mountains rise in the background.
