Headlining the day was a vintage boat race, hosted by the Goolwa Vintage Boat Club, which saw a strong fleet of vintage boats in all shapes and sizes coming together for a hotly-contested passage race.

There was also a lot of dinghies on the water racing out of the Goolwa Aquatic Club for their showcase event of the week.
But what made the event extra special were all the showcase events that took part in the Aqua Spectacular, including Sailability racing, a model yacht demo, team sailing showcase, sand castle competition, pool toy race, as well as some great food and an infectious club atmosphere.
