The Plywood Regatta honors the craft of boat building and the excitement of recreational boating in an effort to continue “building boating’s future … today!”

A maximum of 38 teams of middle school, high school and marine technical school students will attempt to build sea-worthy vessels on Saturday, April 6th using simple hand-tools and only the supplied materials of plywood, 3M 5200 fast cure caulk and zip ties. Once the boats are complete students will then paint and decorate their boats. On Sunday, April 7th, participants will compete in a fun-filled and friendly rivalry when the finished, decorated boats line up and race in a series of heats to determine an event champion.

All Plywood Regatta proceeds benefit South Florida’s marine industry education programs and the Plywood Regatta Scholarship Fund. The aim of these programs is to encourage marine education and develop students’ interest in the marine industry.

You can find the schedule, rules and other information of interest on the event website. Registration forms are also online and can be downloaded, printed and returned. The deadline to register is March 22, 2019.

There is a minimum of 6 students and a maximum of 8 students per team. Only one registration form per team should be submitted, along with the Participant Consent Form for each student participating. Don’t have a team but still want to be part of the fun? Complete the individual registration form and we will assign you to a team.
