South Australian residents are being invited to discover the joys of boating on Sunday 12 October 2014 as the focus of South Australia (S.A.) Marina Day, launched at the Adelaide Boat Show.

Participating marinas and yacht clubs include the Cruising Yacht Club of SA (CYCSA), The Marina Hindmarsh Island, Marina Adelaide and Cape Jaffa Anchorage, with a total of 15 marinas across the State expected to participate. South Australian marinas are planning a full day of predominantly free on-water and land side events so people can experience the boating lifestyle first-hand and learn how easy it is to get involved.

Craig Evans, General Manager of the CYCSA said, 'The industry is looking forward to introducing people to the fun and social benefits of boating in a safe and friendly way with activities planned for all ages. There will be opportunities to learn about boats, accessories and related equipment with walk-throughs and demonstrations on boat maintenance, boating safety and management, as well as the basic skills of sailing.'

'Other activities planned will include sailing races and tours of the various marina facilities, nature and environmental activities and demonstrations, fishing events, live music, charity fundraisers, children’s activities and ‘build-a-boat’ projects,' he said.

Generously supported by IC Frith & Associates Insurance Brokers, the S.A. Marina Day is also expected to attract existing and lapsed boaters to rediscover the joys of boating by connecting with boating enthusiasts and new boating experiences.

All facilities will have food and refreshments available for sale plus local business are expected to join in the fun and ply their wares.

More details including the growing list of participating marinas will be available on the www.myboatinglife.com.au website as well as at www.marinas.net.au and on the participating marinas’ individual websites.
