Registrations now open for your Festival of fun and learning

Registrations have opened today for the 2016 Riviera Festival of Boating – 2016’s Ultimate Boating Event.

For this, your 5th Festival, we have created 17 brand-new, informative and very hands-on workshops to help you take your boating enjoyment to inspiring new levels.

We also have fully refreshed formats for 19 other workshops, providing an even greater focus on specific areas of interest over four action-packed days on Queensland’s sunny Gold Coast from 19-22 May 2016.

The Festival of Boating is open to all existing luxury motor yacht owners and you have an amazing choice of 111 educational workshops and social events over these four inspiring days.

There are both introductory and advanced courses to suit all degrees of seamanship and boating knowledge, so it doesn’t matter if you are brand-new to luxury motor yacht ownership or you have been enjoying boating all your life, even the most experienced offshore skipper will discover something new and informative at this year’s Riviera Festival of Boating.

Of course, Festival is equally about fun as it is about learning, and in 2016 we present two vibrant social events – a Festival Friday Fashion and Fine Food Ladies Luncheon especially for the Ladies; and our Saturday night marina party, gala dinner and show ‘Viva Las Riviera’.

We look forward to welcoming you to the home of Riviera on the Gold Coast from 19-22 May 2016.
