The Regatta is open to participation from individuals, schools, youth groups, businesses, groups of friends, government and non-profit organizations etc. – anyone desiring to build a boat and participate. This is a wonderful team-building experience, giving employees an opportunity to work to
gether toward a common goal and have a lot of fun doing it.

All boats must be made entirely of recycled corrugated cardboard. No metal, wood, screws or motors. From canoes to cruise ships and space ships, you’re liable to see it here and you’ll be asking yourself… “Will that really float?”

Awards will be given for the Pride of the Fleet, Team Spirit, Most Whimsical, People’s Choice and Titanic Award for the best and most dramatic sinking!
