Yorke Peninsula's Saltwater Classic 2024

Yorke Peninsula

Yorke Peninsula's Saltwater Classic is a flagship event for enthusiasts and admirers of wooden and classic craft that have been faithfully restored to keep afloat some of the great traditions of boat building.
The biennial event attracts boat owners and crews from across South Australia and interstate to display their vessels in the waters off the sister towns of Stansbury and Port Vincent.
After an enforced COVID-19 pandemic hibernation, Yorke Peninsula’s Saltwater Classic will burst back in spectacular fashion on the weekend of 13 and 14 April 2024.
Since its inception in 2003, the Saltwater Classic has grown to become a major attraction in the region with the support of the South Australian Tourism Commission, Yorke Peninsula Tourism, local businesses and communities.
People can meet boat owners and crews and get a close-up look at vessels presented on trailers along the foreshore in Stansbury on the Saturday morning before the craft are launched for the run to Port Vincent in the early afternoon. In Port Vincent, the fleet will be on display in the marina on Sunday morning before more parades in the bay during the day.
Supporting the on-water spectacles will be vibrant seaside markets along with displays of vintage cars and motorbikes, stationary engines from the past, local art, crafts and regional produce including locally produced wines, spirits and beverages and delicious seafood.
