Rrrrrr Mateys! Build Your Own Boat Regatta Docks at the CRC
Ahoy land-lubbers! You better hoist yourself up on your salty sea legs because family fun is taking to the high seas, metaphorically speaking, as the Build Your Own Boat Regatta floats back into the Community Recreation Center for the fifth time.
On Friday, August 14th from 6:30 – 9:00 pm, the Build Your Own Boat Regatta gives families the chance to build and captain their own boats, then attempt to sail them in the recreation center pool. Families will need to designate a Captain, who must be under 18 years of age, as well as a First Mate, who must be over 18.
Each family will then build their own two-man vessel and sail it across the briny blue (read: CRC pool.) Each family will be given a secret list of supplies to construct their ship within the hour and a half timeframe, before testing them out and seeing if they are seaworthy.
Captains and mates will then race their cardboard canoes against other entrants for a chance to take home the coveted Build Your Own Boat Regatta trophy and earn bragging rights for a full year.
The cost for this event is $10 per boat and registration fills up very quickly. Keep in mind that, if your family would like to build more than one boat, you must register accordingly.
