The committee met on January 6th and made the decision to alter the format for this year’s Tawe Nunnugah to broaden its appeal.  The major change is that there are now NO FEES - the cost is only $25 per day to cover common organisational expenses.  This is based on participants being largely self sufficient.  You still get to do all the important stuff  - cruising the beautiful inshore waters of the Huon and the D'Entrecasteaux Channel in good company (both on and off the water), but you will have to throw your own snag on the barby in the evening.

Here, in summary, is the new plan.


  • The event is now a ‘cruise in company’ for a duration of five days - four days in passage and one at the Wooden Boat Rally.  

  • The schedule, subject to conditions, is as follows.

    • Cast off from the LBT pontoon on Friday 7th 0700

    • Stay at Randalls Bay that night

    • Depart Randalls Saturday 8th  at 0700

    • Stay at Kettering or Gordon that night depending on conditions

    • At Kettering for Wooden Boat Rally Sunday 9th

    • Depart Kettering 7am Monday 10th

    • Spend night at Randalls

    • Tuesday 11th to Franklin

  • Participants will be expected to be self sufficient in all respects.  

  • Participants will be expected to contribute $25 per day to cover common organisational expenses.  There are no fees.

  • Those bringing their own boats to participate in the Wooden Boat Rally will need to register: cost $25.  See http://bit.ly/1cyPdmc for the entry form and conditions.  Boats not participating will need to organise their own anchorage or other accommodation at Kettering.

  • All participants must be financial members of the Living Boat Trust.  Those who wish to be involved but who are not currently members will need to join up.  See the details for doing this at http://bit.ly/1cyTzK6

  • There will be safety boats and minimal land based transport and support, subject to some of the event participants making themselves available to crew these operations.

  • There will be no catering provided.

  • The land transport will consist of a utility towing the food trailer, which can be refrigerated when there is power.  BBQ’s and a small marquee with extension tarp will be carried on the ute and trailer.  There will be space for a medium esky for each person, plus a SMALL amount of general luggage.
