The Plywood Regatta was established in 1996 by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida. The event honors the craft of boat building and the excitement of recreational boating in an effort to continue ‘building boat’s future…today!’
Teams of middle school, high school, and marine technical school students will attempt to build sea-worth vessels in one day, using simple hand-tools and only the supplied materials of: plywood, 3M 5200 fast cure caulk, and zip ties. Once the boats are built, the students paint, decorate, and name their boats. On day 2 of the event, participants will compete in a fun-filled and friendly rivalry as they line up their boats to test them in the water and race each other in a series of heats to determine an event champion.
