‘Errol Flynn the Seafarer’

04 Oct

The Seafarers’ Festival presents a special focus on

‘Errol Flynn the Seafarer’

Sirocco KARENITA Racing

The annual Seafarers’ Festival will celebrate the swashbuckling career of Errol Flynn in a jammed packed day on Sunday 27 October at the Bellerive Boardwalk.

Errol Flynn is much loved by Tasmanians for his work on the silver screen but he is not often recognised for his achievements as a seafarer. In his youth Errol Flynn was an avid sea goer with his father Theodore and in his early adult life he sailed to New Guinea aboard his beautiful yacht Sirocco. There he managed a tobacco plantation and a copper mine amongst other things before forging his career as an actor of wide renown.

The Sirocco, which has hosted many famous names in the heyday of Hollywood and has been a regular sight at top Mediterranean venues for decades, will be a centrepiece at this year’s Seafarers’ Festival. To read more about the Sirocco click here.

Supporting the glittering Hollywood theme, MC Ryk Goddard will bring all the elements of stage and water activities together with the panache of a Hollywood movie star. The cast from Big Monkey will present extracts from their performance of Robin Hood, there will be roving crusty pirates, and the University of Tasmania Fencing Society will present swashbuckling demonstrations.

There’s also a new water-sideshow-alley with the popular ‘dunk the pirate’, Fishcare fishing, ‘Fling a Fish’ and for the first time you can walk on water inside a fabulous water ball.

With over 40 stalls around the site you’ll find maritime and historic information intermingles with fine food stalls, a Moo Brew bar and a great stage program of music, dance and theatre.  The Bellerive Yacht Club will hold a Bosuns Locker Sale and the promenade will be buzzing with a range of fine arts and craft stalls.

This year the popular Betta Milk Raft Challenge will be judged by special guests and Frank and Nikki and there will be great opportunities for Festival goers to get out on the water aboard the Lady Nelson or the Huon Paddle Boats.

A full program will be available at the Clarence City Council website soon so please check www.cc….au/seafarers for more information over coming days!

The EFB Mailbag!

02 Oct
David,
Just found this in looking for information on John Wayne on the ZACA since it was in a documentary on the Blu Ray Disc of Hondo, (one photo only) but it was black  painted in the photo and it only showed the last three letters of ACA and it was showing San Fransisco underneath so it had to be it.
Maybe you have seen this already but it may be worthing posting on your site.

Richard Schultz

Thanks, Richard!
