Join all our amazing sponsors and all the Silly Sailors at the Silly Boat Regatta! Silly Boat is the Nanaimo Child Development Centre's (NCDC) signature event - raising over $112,000 for programs and services in 2017. Celebrating 34 years of Silly Boat this year, the event is considered one of the premier events held in the City of Nanaimo.


Approximately 50 teams (made up of individuals, families, service groups and corporate individuals) have 4 hours to build a boat out of recycled or recyclable materials and then race them in the inner harbour. This fun, family-oriented event has it all! Proceeds raised at the event go towards programs and services provided at the Nanaimo Child Development Centre.


We presently have 345 children on our waitlist, waiting up to 10 months for some services (particularly speech therapy and occupational therapy). Join the fun at the Pavilion Stage area (dancers, performers, crafts and educational booths), stroll thru the park and watch the teams build their boats, purchase raffle tickets to support the cause and enjoy the beautiful scenery at Maffeo Sutton Park.


Make this a “MUST DO” this summer!
