Battle Of The Boats

The Battle of the Boats at Pacific Palms in 2017 will celebrating the 18th year of competition. The carnival has deservedly gained a reputation as a well run event in a beautiful part of the world. It provides crews with top level competition leading into State and Aussie titles.

The Battle of the Boats commenced in 1999 as a carnival for boaties and with their needs in mind. That first year 63 crews competed. In 2015 160 crews participated and in 2016 we hosted 180 crews.

Pacific Palms offers an ideal location for a boat carnival with a fantastic beach, a large variety of accommodation close to the club and plenty for non-boating family and friends to do.
