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.
This year they take a larger role,
and will organize 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.
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 on Englewood's largest outdoor swimming pool at Ann Dever Memorial Park on San Casa!
Two build-a-boat workshops (time and location will be announced soon) with tips for building, plans, material requirements, decorating, and construction ideas and demonstration of how to make a simple boat from used cardboard.
Registration can be done on the website or the morning of the race. See the website link above. Wear your company t-shirt and show some pride!
Get your team together -- get some T-shirts --
build your boat and join the fun!
It all starts with Registration at 8:30am
gates open at 9am
Races beigin at 10am
at Ann Dever Memorial Park Aquatic Pool on San Casa
Seating will be limited, bring a chair.
See you there!
