- You may decorate the boat with paint, but none may appear on the bottom 6 inches of the boat.
- Boats must float with at least one person aboard.
- Kayak paddles may be used during the race. Paddles may be available at the race.
Race details and a full agenda will be provided when we are closer to the event. There will be press at this event so please ensure all students and their parents are aware and a photo waiver is collected. Don’t want to build a boat?
