The Manly Inflatable Boat Race is Back
For the fourteenth year in a row Manly Beach will host its inflatable boat race. The charity event pitches participants against each other in the surf – dressed in colourful costumes, on board even brighter inflatable rafts. Think pool ponies and pink swans.
The race begins at 10.30am from Shelly Beach and is a one-kilometre paddle back to shore. Register your boat at the south end of Manly Beach.
After crossing the finish line, head to Hotel Steyne for a sausage sizzle and prize presentations. All proceeds go to Tour de Cure for cancer research.
Registration costs $55 in advance or $60. Anyone under 12 must be accompanied an adult, too.
