Maritime charities to benefit from the Cardboard Boat Regatta

Cardboard Boat Regatta

The first Seawork Cardboard Boat Regatta is being held during the Seawork 4th July celebrations. Entrants will be racing for the Speed@Seawork Award for Fastest Boat, the 4th July Award for the Best Bedecked Boat and the Soggy Bottom Award.

The charity Atlantic Pacific International Rescue Boat Project will be managing on-water safety at the event. It is a not-for-profit NGO with a simple purpose - to provide lifeboats where there are none.

The winning companies may choose to donate any prize money won directly to the Atlantic Pacific project or nominate a maritime charity of their choice.

Seawork organisers are encouraging companies to challenge each other in the Cardboard Boat Regatta and are looking forward to entries from intrepid vessel builders and designers with some ingenious inventions.

The regatta is the headline event of the 4th July Celebrations and will be widely publicised by the press team.

Challenging a company team couldn’t be easier - exhibitors can challenge competitors via social media #SeaworkCardboardBoat
