Wooden boat association.

Wooden Boat AssociationThe Wooden Boat Association of South Australia (WBASA) is a collective of very interesting people. But no where near as interesting as the boats they own, love and muck about in!

The WBASA was formed over 20 years ago. Having just compiled the history of those first 20 years has reinforced the fact that the original ideals of the Association are still very relevant today.

The Wooden boat association website is provided for the members of the Association and those people who "cruise" the web in search of information, photos and news related to the world of wooden boats.

Our members are men and woman from all walks of life, all ages and differing levels of experience. Our boats are big and small, they are sail, electric, power or people propelled and they range from the very new and pristine to the very old and "rustic" in appearance. Whatever their characteristics they are all built predominantly using that most magical of boat building materials, the one that is environmentally friendly and a renewable resource, wood. And apart from anything else, we just love to talk about them, compare them and have fun in them.

Riverland Cruising Boat Club Inc. (RCBC)

The Riverland Cruising Boat Club Inc. (RCBC) was formed in 1986 to engage in family-friendly boating and camping trips in the upper reaches of the Murray River in South Australia. Since then our activities have expanded to other locations on the Murray River and beyond. Every two years we stage a River Run, which is a supported multi-day boating tour covering up to 200km of river. Our Dinghy Dawdles are usually held each year and are based around a single camp, with the focus on day trips in smaller boats to explore more minor waterways. Both of these events typically run over 7 - 10 days and each year we also do shorter trips of 2-4 days duration. Both River Runs and Dinghy Dawdles are supported by our amenities trailer, which provides the luxury of hot showers and flushing toilets to our bush campsites. We are an eclectic mob. Our boats range from canoes, kayaks, tinnies and open wooden putt-putts to cruisers and luxury houseboats. Our camping accommodation can be anything from swags and hike tents to sleep-on-board boats, family tents, campers and caravans. Our members come from regional towns and capital cities throughout the Murray-Darling Basin states and other areas of Australia. We encourage participation of families and, where possible, each year we have events in school holidays and on public holidays. Members with more flexibility also benefit from cruising in mid-winter and outside of holiday periods, when the Murray River is at its best. More informal smaller group cruises often arise when boats are moved from their moorings to the starting points for scheduled activities. From our inception we have supported charities such as medical research and support foundations; the Royal Flying Doctor Service; the State Emergency Service; Variety Club fundraisers; Blaze Aid and the restoration of historic river vessels. We promote the safe and responsible use of the river and this has included training sessions on first aid and safety as well as environmental rehabilitation through tree planting. The RCBC publishes a newsletter twice per annum and this has recently been migrated into electronic form and distributed mostly by email.
