Silly Boat Regatta could use some more volunteers

July 14 event is a fundraiser for the Nanaimo Child Development Centre

A community event next weekend needs a few more volunteers to make sure all that silly sailing goes smoothly.

The Silly Boat Regatta is looking to fill a variety of volunteer positions including site setup, concession sales, cooks, supervisors for the bouncy castles and mini-regatta, ticket sellers and security.

The Silly Boat Regatta, a fundraiser for the Nanaimo Child Development Centre, will be held Sunday, July 14, at Maffeo Sutton Park. Dozens of teams representing businesses and community groups construct boats at the park in the morning and then race them in the harbour in the afternoon.

For more information, call Tracy at 250-668-6794 or e-mail sillyboatvolunteer@gmail.com. Or get in touch with Volunteer Nanaimo at 250-758-7121 or www.volunteernanaimo.ca.
