Queues of eager residents lined the Marine Parade jetty to take advantage of the day. With proof of Queenstown residency, more than 1000 people were able to experience a jet-boat ride at a discounted price.

While the full amount was yet to be finalised yesterday, funds raised will be evenly divided between the Lakeland Christian Camp and the Bruce Grant Youth Trust.
