The Coast Guard auxiliary, Englewood Flotilla 87 is the host of Cardboard Boat Race! For years the Auxiliary has participated operating the first aid Safety booth, and additionally has distributed life jackets to the participants who needed them. Once again, they’ve taken on a larger role and organized the event!
Cardboard Boats are built from boxes, rug tubes, sona-tubes and all things cardboard. They are piloted by the builders and participants, and need to float to complete the course on Lemon Bay.
Note: You can’t build a cardboard boat overnight. So if you are planning to join us, it’s time to get underway.
Participants range from kids (and their parents) to fun loving adults to local businesses. Paint the name of your business on the boat for an advertising opportunity. The goal is to build a sea-worthy vessel from ordinary cardboard, decorate it in any way that you choose, and then paddle or sail it through a course just off the southern tip of Indian Mound Park.
Registration begins at 8 am & the event kicks off around 10 am. Registration can be done on the website, www.englewoodpioneerdays.com or the morning of the race. Wear your company t-shirt and show some pride!
Get your team together — get some T-shirts — build your boat and join the fun!
See you there!
