We would love to see old friends and longstanding members of the Living Boat Trust in the 2017 Raid, but to be fair to everyone, if we are oversubscribed we will offer priority to those people who apply early - so get your EOI in now and beat the rush (go to: http://lbt.rforster.org/tn17 for more information.
The 2017 tawe nunnugah Raid begins in Recherche Bay on Wednesday 1 February and finishes at the start of the Australian Wooden Boat Festival in Hobart in Friday 10 February. The journey will take the fleet of small rowing and sailing boats from Recherche Bay at the edge of Tasmania’s southwest wilderness up the D'Entrecasteaux Channel along the beautiful coastline of Bruny Island, across the mouth of the Huon River, before entering the Derwent River on our approach to Hobart. The expedition is fully catered and along the way we will camp at lovely secluded sites, including several on Bruny Island.
Marketing for the 2017 Raid is starting to ramp up. We have an article in the next Australian Wooden Boat Festival newsletter and expect it to attract a lot of interest. We have decided to limit the number of people on the Raid to about the size of past Raids so that we can continue to use the lovely hidden camp sites that we have visited previously. Don’t leave it to chance and risk missing out – get your application in now.
The Expression of Interest and Boat Registration forms are open and ready to go – just follow the links on the left side of the page at: http://lbt.rforster.org/tn17
