BOATFEST is a true community event, born from some dedicated volunteers within the Port Adelaide Sailing Club, refined by the Management Committee, and driven with passion to achieve funding to take it to fruition.

The working committee has a diverse and enthusiastic group of community minded individuals and we envisage the creation of ancillary events that, under licence, use the BOATFEST branding to grow smaller, eclectic event offerings within the overarching framework.

This is already happening within the Port community and we see continued growth in this area. Community minded businesses are also making contact with the event to ascertain how they may showcase effectively through this unique medium.
