Sydney Festival of Boating Cancelled.𝗦𝘆𝗱𝗻𝗲𝘆 𝗙𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗮𝗹 𝗼𝗳 𝗕𝗼𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗖𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗱

The Boating Industry Association (BIA) has made the difficult decision to cancel the Sydney Festival of Boating, which was scheduled to run from 29 July to 1 August, to support efforts by government in controlling the current COVID-19 outbreak in Sydney which is now impacting other States.

Boating has proven to be a standout choice in leisure activity through the pandemic. The combination of no international travel, the staycation phenomenon, flexible work practices and the need to be COVID Safe have seen interest in getting out the water ramp up significantly.

For resources to help you get out and make the most of their time on the water head to Discover Boating - discoverboating.com.au/

For more information on the cancellation of the Sydney Festival of Boating, you can view the media statement via the following link - www.bia.org.au/news/sydney-festival-of-boating-cancelled
